Light In The Attic Records presents
‘Cowboy In Sweden’ Screening & LHI Record Release Party
After 7 intense years in the making, Seatlle’s Light in The Attic Records just released their most expansive and lavishly packaged project to date: There’s A Dream I’ve Been Saving, a box set commemorating the complete legacy of Lee Hazlewood Industries from 1966-1971.
Included in that box set is one of the several Swedish television specials Hazelwood made with filmmaker Torbjörn Axelman, COWBOY IN SWEDEN.
“…the film must have been exceedingly surreal, since the record exists in its own space and time. At its core, it’s a collection of country and cowboy tunes, but the production is cinematic and psychedelic, creating a druggy, discombobulated sound like no other. This is mind-altering music — the combination of country song structures, Hazlewood’s deep baritone, the sweet voices of Nina Lizell and Suzi Jane Hokom, rolling acoustic guitars, ominous strings, harpsichords and flutes, eerie pianos, and endless echo is stranger than outright avant-garde music…” – Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
