Lewis & Clarke

MP3: Lewis & Clarke – “Petrified Forest”

Light Time, the forthcoming EP from Lewis & Clarke, is a subtle and powerful 12″ vinyl exercise in it’s own flaws, weaknesses and strength of purpose. Side A’s two tracks act as one piece of transitional music; confrontational and satisfying with the softest abandon of self-awareness. Side B glances to the past and confirms the restorative cycle of death, decay, contemplation, and re-growth. And yes, L & C eats its own fruit with a new version of “Dead & Gone” (from 2005’s Bare Bones and Branches) as well as boldly reinterpreting a most personal and influential song by Leonard Cohen. For all of the whispery voiced, faux-bohemian, lilting clichés that over populate what we can loosely term as “folk music”, Lewis & Clarke once again reminds us that the heart, above all else, is a muscle.
