Do you remember when Nick Cave released his solo track ‘Into My Arms’? Mmm. You, like me, probably sighed “Ohhh, this really is quality. But why the fuck are they releasing it? What, exactly is the point?”
The point, is... I don’t know actually. More plastic burned for no real reason. It’s not even as if Lambchop have forged a reputation as purveyors of the great single - discounting, of course, their great single ‘Up With The People’. Perhaps the point is perversity: How many songs begin as a 3 minute lament, and turn into a cod reggae fusion that sounds like Big Bob Marley and the Hicks? Don’t know for sure, but I’m thinking one. Nice song, great album, but I refuse to waste anymore time on this review.
[it sounds like the mellowest, most stoned jazz you'll ever hear by the way - sean]
