Lab Overview

We played this nonstop at Lab HQ when it first dropped in 2017, and slowly but surely everyone in the office had an employee copy to their name by the end of that first week. It did numbers at our tenth street storefront too, like a secret handshake between our staff and the deepest music heads. Immaculately presented in a heavy duty tip-on gatefold with gorgeous cover art, incredibly detailed liner notes, obi strip... that's not even touching on what's contained within; we promise you've never heard anything quite like it. O.G. Lab review:

Light In The Attic presents an incredible anthology of seldom-heard (at least on this side of the world) Japanese folk and rock rarities. Even A Tree Can Shed Tears examines the fertile period between 1969 and 1973 that changed the face of Japanese music forever. It was during these years that the angura (short for "underground) movement came about from the rising youth culture - a movement that "thrived on subverting traditions of the post-war years" and would eventually give way to what is known in Japan as "New Music." This "New Music" put authenticity at the forefront, empowering Japanese musicians to take on new directions and present new perspectives -  a stark contrast to the squeaky clean, idol-replicating college folk that came before it. Highlights include "Mizu Tamari" by Fumio Nunoya, "Marianne" by Gu, "Ware Ware Wa" by Tetsuo Saito, "Hei No Ue De" by Hachimitsu Pie, and "Nastu Nandesu" by Happy End. This double LP compilation from LITA is the first ever fully licensed release of peak angura movement folk and rock songs to reach a Western audience. Comes housed in deluxe gatefold Stoughton tip-on sleeve featuring artwork by Heisuke Kitazawa, and includes a full color booklet featuring extensive liner notes and bios by Yosuke Kitazawa and Jake Orrall and traditional obi strip. Highly Recommended!
