More Info:

Triple vinyl LP pressing of this 2014 collection. Largely unheard, criminally undocumented, but at their core, utterly revolutionary, the recordings of the diverse Nor th American Aboriginal community will finally take their rightful place in our collective history in the form of NATIVE NOR th AMERICA (VOL. 1): ABORIGINAL FOLK, ROCK, AND COUNTRY 1966-1985. An anthology of music that was once near-extinct and off-the-grid is now available for all to hear, in what is, without a doubt, Light In The Attic's most ambitious and historically significant project in the label's 12-year journey. NATIVE NOR th AMERICA (VOL. 1) features music from the Indigenous peoples of Canada and the northern United States, recorded in the turbulent decades between 1966 to 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 wi th Native consciousness, storytelling, poetry, history, and ceremony.
