Lewis – Romantic Times preview + pre-order http://www.gorillavsbear.net/2014/07/23/lewis-romantic-times-preview/ http://www.gorillavsbear.net/2014/07/23/lewis-romantic-times-preview/#comments Thu, 24 Jul 2014 01:08:25 +0000 Chris http://www.gorillavsbear.net/?p=344254 Read more »]]>


Thanks to Hipinion for somehow brokering the liberation of this painfully short (alleged) preview of Lewis‘ unheard, only recently discovered second album, Romantic Times, released just two years after L’Amour to zero fanfare. This one’s already commanding bids of over $1600 on ebay with almost 4 days left to go. The legend gets deeper / more ridiculous…

UPDATE: …and there it is: pre-order on pink vinyl + preview every track on the album via the magicians at Light In the Attic. Pre-orders come with instant download of the whole record.

Thanks to our friends DIANA for the heads up on London, Ontario, analog dream-pop duo You’ll Never Get To Heaven, and the group’s entrancing and elegant new EP, Adorn. Listen to the record’s gorgeous title track, and the every-bit-as-lovely opener “Caught In Time, So Far Away“, which sounds a bit like Chromatics at their most haunting and ethereal, below. Adorn was originally self-released by YNGTH earlier this year on cassette, and will get new life on limited 12″ later this summer via Montreal label Psychic Handshake (edit: get it here); listen to EP in its entirety (including a dreamy Eno cover) here.
