Light in the Attic Records have created a powerful brand these past few years as the Indiana Jones of the vinyl community. Â They travel the world in search of lost artifactsÂ andÂ mythical objects shrouded in dusty cardboard boxes in dank record store basements. Â Reissuing and rediscovering music’s tragic obscurities is their trademark, but they also produce new material. Â One of my favorite albums, The Black Angels’ classic Passover from 2006, was a LITA original.
Their latest new artist is Sylvia Simmons, but her style could easily pass for another lost-and-found release. Â On You Are In My Arms, a ukelele gently strums along with Sylvie’s smokyÂ lounge delivery. Â You could easily hear this in the background while sipping on an espresso in some small Italian town, or catching her eye from the piano as she serenades a jazz club somewhere in New York City in 1958. Â It’s a timeless sound for a timeless music label.
