To help you beat those post-Valentine's blues, it is our deep pride and great pleasure to announce... Portland’s Tu Fawning are to release their sophomore album 'A Monument' via City Slang on 7th May 2012 in Europe, 15 May in US !!  As a first taster of this (take it from us) AMAZING new album, the band are offering you an MP3 download premiere of “Bones”, a 7+ minute-long opus of pure dark, slow-burning joy and pulsing primal beats. 

Led by Corrina Repp and Joe Haege (Menomena, 31Knots), 'A Monument' expands upon the dark, vaudevillian vibes of the band's 2010 debut LP 'Hearts On Hold'. The album is steeped in the band’s love of music from around the world, with Repp’s formidable, smoky voice leading the charge throughout, at once ethereal and earthly... keep your eyes and ears peeled for more on this release over the next months, but until then, download "Bones", listen good, and pass it on...

Dim the lights, drum roll please and trumpets at the ready - the hotly anticipated video for "Gone Tomorrow" is finally here!!

Premiered today across the globe, you can now watch it here via the City Slang site.  

This mini-masterpiece was shot (on film - yes, that's why it looks so pretty) in Nashville last November, and sees the band perform alongside Tennessee wrestling legends Jocephus and Wolfie D.  Directed by one special talent all the way from Paris France, Zack Spiger, this beautiful piece of filmmaking is not to be missed.

The Guardian's Michael Hann joined Kurt Wagner in Nashville last month to talk about Lambchop's new album 'Mr. M', balancing painting and music, dealing with the loss of his dear friend Vic Chesnutt and the future of Lambchop as a band. The full feature can be found in today's edition of the Guardian, along with an exclusive stream of the album:
