The LITA Podcast Is Here!

Ohhh it’s been a long time comin’, but we done did it! We are so beyond stoked to finally be presenting the Light In The Attic Podcast!

For years we’ve wanted to put together a podcast because so often the stories behind our releases are as awesome as the music itself– stories of missed opportunities, lost labors of love, unsolved mysteries, treasure hunting, second chances, and redemption! This podcast will be devoted to telling you these stories, playing the music itself, and welcoming you into the attic to hang with the characters behind LITA releases.

In our first episode, we discuss our Record Store Day 2015 releases- Shogun Assassin, Teatro, and the LITA Zine. You’ll hear music from Shogun, Teatro, and Native North America, an interview with Willie Nelson & Daniel Lanois, and an interview with the editor of the LITA zine, Lydia Hyslop.

We’re already working on episode two which will focus on the story behind just one release, our most recent reissue of 1984 folk album Songs From Suicide Bridge. We can’t wait to share that episode with you as well.

Have a listen in the audio player below, on iTunes, at this link, or on SoundCloud or YouTube.

Thanks for checking it out, we hope you like it!
