Boomkat Product Review:
Lambchop release two albums simultaneously, packaged within a card slipcase, and only available together as this package. The band were invited to perform a live soundtrack in San Francisco to F.W.Murnau’s classic film ‘Sunrise’ in the spring of 2003, and this enabled front man Kurt Wagner to select a total of thirty six songs from a “buttload” of music accumulated between the summer of 2002 and the spring of 2003. Twenty four of those tracks have been selected, and these make up the content of the two records. ·It was important to Lambchop that these were not released as a double album, and the concept of the simultaneous release was born, the idea being that each record can be listened to as a single entity. Naturally both are intertwined, but it is not necessary to experience them as a double album to do them justice. ·The albums are a significant step away from the intimate approach of their previous album ‘Is A Woman’, and instead recall the string-drenched sounds of their classic ‘Nixon’ album. Indeed, Lloyd Barry, who was responsible for the string arrangements on ‘Nixon’, picks up the reins again here. ·However, whereas Paul Niehaus’ pedal steel was the focus for ‘Nixon’, and Tony Crow’s piano the anchor for ‘Is A Woman’, ‘Aw C’mon’ and ‘No You C’mon’ are centred around ‘young’ William Tyler’s guitar. Lovely.
