UPDATE: THEY FOUND LEWIS!
Light in the Attic’s latest reissue from the wild world of quiet synth music is here! Who the hell is this Lewis guy? The liner notes do a fantastic job at answering this question while the man still seems so mysterious. Look at that album artwork. It’s hard to tell what the music is actually going to sound like and I promise you that you’ll never guess. But drop the needle on this mystical record and pouring out of your speakers comes the most mesmerizing, quiet, heartbreakingly sweet synth folk music ever put to tape…at least that’s a possibility. How was this lost in the ether for so long? What else is out there like this? These are valid questions but for now we have Lewis and his “L’Amour” LP, and that suits us just fine. The record comes housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with even more photos of our boy Lewis, and those aforementioned liner notes, which make for some fine reading while basking in the synth/acoustic guitar cashmere blanket of a record this is. We highly recommend adding this to your summer playlist and letting it carry you through all the changing seasons to come. Wherever you are Lewis, thank you!
