Light in the Attic Records have created a powerful brand these past few years as the Indiana Jones of the vinyl community.  They travel the world in search of lost artifacts and mythical objects shrouded in dusty cardboard boxes in dank record store basements.  Reissuing and rediscovering music’s tragic obscurities is their trademark, but they also produce new material.  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.  On You Are In My Arms, a ukelele gently strums along with Sylvie’s smoky lounge delivery.  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.  It’s a timeless sound for a timeless music label.
