Lambchop - Gone Tomorrow

Mr M, Lambchop's tenth album, eleventh if you count Aw C'mon/No You C'mon as single discs, out 20th February, is Kurt Wagner's response to Vic Chesnutt's death, a treatise on what we learn from life and loss. The first three minutes are the kind of soul-inflected country lament, here with elegant strings backing, Wagner knocks out like others put the kettle on, before going through an ambient effect tunnel and re-emerging into all sorts of jam-like moving-on crystalline shapes.
