This + FLOTUS CD Bundle
Lambchop - This (Is What I Wanted to Tell You) CD
With ’This (Is What I Wanted To Tell You)’ Lambchop continue to establish themselves as forerunners and innovators of what was once called Alt Country. Their sound has morphed to encompass multiple genres, blending folk songwriting with the tones of urban soul.
Following on from the pioneering sounds of ‘Flotus' (2017), ’This (Is What I Wanted To Tell You)’ showcases Lambchop at a new peak in their career, whilst still retaining the ingredients of their classic albums. ’This’ is brimming with ideas, songs and hooks. A huge influence on the new direction is Matthew McCaughan (of Bon Iver and Hiss Golden Messenger), who produced and co-wrote large parts of the album together with Kurt Wagner.

Lambchop - FLOTUS CD
On 4 November 2016, Lambchop return with For Love Often Turns Us Still—officially titled FLOTUS. Inspired as always to make art from the unusual sounds and scenes of his South Nashville neighbourhood, Kurt Wagner set aside what he has learned over the last 30 years and embarked on a musical adventure to bring us this album that sounds like no one else — or, completely, unmistakably, like himself.
Wanting to make an album that his neighbours and wife would listen to – though a version of that garbled through grocery store speakers and tiny cell phones - Kurt became inspired by, though not tethered to, a plethora of modern day musical voices across modern R&B, soul and hip-hop amongst other genres. “Overall, artists like myself have been using the same production techniques forever, letting technology enhance and further a sound but not really taking it to a new place. Technology bending to the will of the creator became playful, complex, and exciting to hear on repeat with a structure still open to interpretation.”
