iTunes Review

Young musicians shouldn't take tips from Kurt Wagner, the lead singer of Lambchop. He defies all the rules: He fronts an alt-country band based in mainstream Music City Nashville. His band boasts over twelve members onstage. He's a lead vocalist who reminds one of, well, Burl Ives. It should be a recipe for disaster, but instead, on albums such as 1996's How I Quit Smoking, Wagner and company make music that is brilliant, genre-bending, and simply gorgeous. The poppish "The Man Who Loved Beer," "Life's Little Tragedy," and "Your Life as a Sequel" aren't the noisiest nor twangiest tracks here, but they certainly are some of the best. Lambchop may very well be indie-rock's answer to the Jazz Passengers, utterly indefinable but always fun to hear.

I love Lambchop

You'll never hear so many instruments sound so quiet and swirling together. Vocals are interesting and bizarre; steel guitar is mesmerizing. Each of their offerings is different but they all please. Rich like cheesecake, a few songs at a time is enough for me. As noted in the review, "The Man Who Loved Beer" is a great tune as well. Enjoy.

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...
