Soul-Stirring – KURT WAGNER And LAMBCHOP 16th Album ‘SHOWTUNES’

30 May 2021

KURT WAGNER and his band LAMBCHOP
were pretty productive the past few years.

In 2019 new album This (Is What I Wanted To Tell You)
came out and last year he recorded an LP of covers titled
Trip
with his mates, in Nashville.

New album: Showtunes – 16th LP
Released: 21 May 2021

The Guardian (UK newspaper): “Kurt Wagner puts a midi keyboard
centre stage on Lambchop’s expansive, laid-back latest… Showtunes is
indelibly a Lambchop album, a set of songs that references the legacy
of American songwriting from inside a vat of shimmering treacle. The
pace is slow but spacious, giving rise to a pair of instrumental
meditations.”
Full review: here . Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Listening to Kurt Wagner‘s sonic paintings the
bombastic melodrama of Scott Walker comes to mind, musically that
is, because Walker‘s baritone vox is quite unique. Wagner’s slo-mo
compositions are more accessible, soul-stirring, and less eccentric
although it takes several spins to integrate Wagner‘s world.
