iTunes Editors’ Notes

Lambchop has proven itself a strikingly eclectic outfit defying easy classification. The band reconfigures a host of American genres (from cocktail jazz to ‘60s garage rock) into a self-contained mythological universe tinged with melancholy humor. 2008’s OH (Ohio) is firmly within the Lambchop tradition of sparsely-defined songs dressed up in vaguely unsettling arrangements, with singer/songwriter Kurt Wagner’s mumbling presence at the center. The tracks are somewhat more inviting to the uninitiated than past offerings — “Please Rise” and “Popeye,” for instance, are sung by Wagner with greater attention to clarity. “National Talk Like a Pirate Day” and the title tune bob along on shimmering rhythmic eddies, lapping at the far shores of soft rock. On “Of Raymond” and “Slipped Dissolved and Loosed,” Wagner brings to mind a tranquilized Gordon Lightfoot. Lambchop’s elliptical whimsy comes through in “Sharing a Gibson with Martin Luther King,” while “Popeye” shows their ability to capture foggy textures of emotion in words and sound. Though still challenging to conventional tastes, OH (Ohio) finds this veteran oddball act taking gingerly steps towards greater accessibility.

Customer Reviews

Best in years

I liked the last album a lot but this is even tighter with lots really memorable moments. Kurt's phrasing is just amazing on it

Other reviewers

I don't honestly believe this deserves five stars, but I'll give it that to make up for the other 1 star reviews. If you give Hannah montana and the like five stars, chances are you won't like this. How did you even get here? Please, stick to your own music, and we will stick to ours.

Back in stride

I felt that the releases since "Is a Woman" were lacking in the usual charms of my favorite Lambchop projects; they felt they were trying too hard to go someplace else, and in so doing had lost much direction. This one feels a lot like what I came to love about Lambchop when I first heard them. It's a welcomed rudder adjustment. Don't pay attention to the troll reviews, they (literally) know not of what they speak.

Biography

Formed: 1993 in Nashville, TN

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Touted as "Nashville's most f*cked-up country band" by their label Merge Records, Lambchop was arguably the most consistently brilliant and unique American group to emerge during the 1990s. Their unclassifiable hybrid of country, soul, jazz, and avant-garde noise seemed at one time or another to drink from every conceivable tributary of contemporary music, its Baroque beauty all held together by the surreal lyrical wit and droll vocal presence of frontman Kurt Wagner. Although Lambchop's ever-rotating...
