LAMBCHOP
Tanz-und Folkfest Rudolstadt, Germany
July 2, 2004


Some of the loveliest pop music around can be found on Lambchop's 2000 album, Nixon. Seen either as a yet-to-be-discovered treasure or an acquired taste, Lambchop make glorious pop music - the kind that get stuck in your throat and the kind that is lush without being overbearing or cluttered (the collective can include as many as 20 members). Lambchop's main selling point, apart from their attractive tunes, is Kurt Wagner's half-spoken, half-singing vocals. Wagner will make a mean R&B singer - how can anyone not be touched by The Old Gold Shoe, the opening track on Nixon that both sets the mood and the tone and even the standard? Wagner calls his music Countrypolitan - a hybrid of country, soul, jazz and avant-garde noise. As he says, countrypolitan was connected to "the sound that was being made down the road in Nashville and Memphis - the R&B sound of Stax Records," and it is easy to see

Wagner as Nashville's reluctant star - he only gave up his day job (laying and sanding floors) with the success of Nixon If Lambchop are tantalising in the studio, live and with fewer band members, the group continues to maintain its integrity but this time, it is that sense of (unexpected) vulnerability that comes through.

If the audience at this July 2, 2004 concert in Germany were expecting an energetic performance, they were in for a surprise. The relatively short and relaxed set (less than one hour) comprises songs from the group's current release, Aw C'mon/No, You C'mon, and Nixon - the group's sixth album and the one that "introduced" Lambchop to the world. Backed by the Dafo String Quartet, Wagner is attentive but it is that glowing intimacy that makes this perfect late-night listening.
