    First off, the mystery regarding elusive Canadian artist Lewis deepened substantially this week. First off, following the stellar reissue of his 1983 L'Amour album recently, a second LP from the artist suddenly popped up on eBay. Called Romantic Times, the album has gone on to fetch a top bid of over $1,700. However, if that sounds a little steep to you, the folks over at Light in the Attic did us all a serious solid by announcing a reissue is on its way soon. On the downside, we still don't really know who Lewis is.

  • Play It Right: An Interview with Sylvan Esso

    They were backup singers for Feist. A remix project happened between them. Now, Sylvan Esso's debut album is a thing to behold.

    "I got a phone it beeps/Makes me know I'm not alone," sings Amelia Meath on Sylvan Esso's eponymous debut album. She could be singing about Nick Sanborn. After performing in Milwaukee on the same bill with separate acts -- Meath with her a cappella folk group Mountain Man (who also sang backup for Feist on tour); Sanborn as his solo electronic persona Made of Oak -- the two struck up a rapport that eventually led…

Imagine the head blowing up scene in David Cronenberg's Scanners with less blood and lots more loud explosions over and over and over.....
