Light In The Attic are celebrating their 10 year anniversary in 2012, and are releasing a series of very special coloured vinyl 7”s and digital downloads. The series features contemporary artists covering a track reissued by Light In The Attic on the A-side, plus the original version on the B-side.  

Alex Maas of the Black Angels and Erika Wennerstrom / Jesse Ebaugh of Heartless Bastards (under the band name Sweet Tea) cover Wendy Rene’s ‘After Laughter Comes Tears’, preserving its creepy organ and tortured soul but adding deep bass and raw power. Rene’s original – beloved of Wu Tang Clan, who sampled it on ‘Tearz’ – was one of a handful of timeless soul songs she recorded with The Drapels and solo for Stax before retiring prematurely to raise a family.
