Boomkat Product Review:
‘Is A Woman’ is Lambchop’s highly anticipated new album, coming almost two years to the day after the hugely successful ‘Nixon’. ‘Is A Woman’ is quite a departure from the lush strings of ‘Nixon’. It is described by engineer Marky Nevers as ‘Brian Eno meets Ray Charles!’. The songs were recorded live in the studio with a core of eight or nine players, with pianist Tony Crow providing the central focus to the music. Lambchop have yet again created a thing of rare beauty. The album contains perhaps the strongest set of songs frontman & songwriter Kurt Wagner has ever worked on. The languid pace allows the listener to absorb his detailed observations on what he calls “the richness of life.” The initial pressing of the CD will have an extra 3 track CD featuring previously unavailable tracks ‘This Corrosion’ (Sisters of Mercy cover) ‘Backstreet Girl’ (Rolling Stones cover) and ‘UTI’. The double vinyl will be on superior 180gsm .
