Lambchop

Lambchop are officially back, with what is undoubtedly one of the best albums of their career.

"A remarkable case of sonic reinvention” ????? The Independent
"FLOTUS still sounds like Lambchop, even when it sounds nothing like they have done before, filled with warmth, wistful nostalgia and soft, autumnal light” ???? The Guardian
“A natural continuation of the Lambchop legacy" 4/5 The Times
"As lush and gorgeous as any of their past work” 8.0 Pitchfork
"FLOTUS is highly processed, highly textured--and yet for the most part, it sounds surprisingly natural and unforced.” 4/5 Album of The Month - MOJO
"An album which may turn out to be one of their best and most accessible.” 4/5 Album of The Month - Uncut Magazine



'FLOTUS (For Love Often Turns Us Still)' is streaming today via NPR in the states and the Guardian in the UK, as well as Kurier in Austria, Slate in France, Rolling Stone in Germany, Rockol.it in Italy, and Mondosonoro in Spain!

"Nowhere is Wagner's new approach more arresting than in "NIV." Chugging along on a Krautrock pulse, a synth-pop hook and robotic vocal modulation straight out of Laurie Anderson's toolbox, it traps Wagner's rootsy air in a startling new context." - NPR First Listen

The magnificent Lambchop have shared "NIV", the penultimate track from their forthcoming album 'FLOTUS', out 4 November 2016. "NIV" continues the band's exploration of R&B and hip hop, with a jittery, ebbing bass line against Lambchop's characteristically beautiful piano flourishes, and topped with Wagner's skewed but raw vocals. Tourdates below, but first, have a listen:

In addition to the track, the band have also announced a huge European tour, kicking off in January 2017 and running through until early March. For their 2017 shows, Wagner and bandmates Tony Crow and Matt Swanson will be joined by Wye Oak drummer/keyboardist/general multitasker Andy Stack. It’s gonna be great! All dates below.

FLOTUS is available for pre-order now on CD, 2LP and also as a special limited edition box in collaboration with Austrian winery “Gut Oggau" via our City Slang store:
