Album To Check Out: Lambchop – Mr M

Lambchop is the musical group led by Nashville-based Kurt Wagner along with a rotating cast of musicians. The group combines the best bit of alt-country with folk and soul into its songs. Mr M is the 12th album of its prolific career.

Trading off the country plucks of the guitar with violin strings and a deeper and richer orchestration sound, Mr M accentuates the world-weariness lyrics and voice of Wagner into something truly wonderful. A lot of the songs here don’t even have lyrics and instead relies on the music to carry the listener along. It is a cohesive journey and is arguably one of the band’s best.

Check out the fantastic and contemplative video for the best song off the album, Gone Tomorrow below.

Lambchop – Mr M comes out 2/21 via Merge (order here)
