Order Light in the Attic’s release of Native North America (Vol. 1) – Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966-1985.
On November 25th, Light in the Attic released their most ambitious and historically significant project, Native North America (Vol. 1) – Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966-1985. Native North America (Vol. 1) features a collection of largely unheard, criminally undocumented, and utterly revolutionary recordings from the diverse North American Aboriginal community.
Native North America (Vol. 1) highlights music from the Indigenous peoples of Canada and the Northern United States that were recorded between 1966-1985.
It represents the fusion of shifting global popular culture and a reawakening of Aboriginal spirituality and expression. The majority of this material has been widely unavailable for decades, hindered by lack of distribution or industry support and by limited mass media coverage, until now. You’ll hear Arctic garage rock from the Nunavik region of northern Quebec, melancholy Yup’ik folk from Alaska, and hushed country blues from the Wagmatcook First Nation reserve in Nova Scotia. You’ll hear echoes of Neil Young, Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Johnny Cash, and more among the songs, but injected with Native consciousness, storytelling, poetry, history, and ceremony. -Light in the Attic
