Lambchop is a band from Nashville, fronted by Kurt Wagner.
The music on The Bible (released September 30 in North America on Merge Records) is more unpredictable than it’s ever been on a Lambchop record. Jazz careening into country, into disco, into funk, and back to country. This is Lambchop’s new album—born in a new place but out of a process that he first discovered back home at Nashville's Springwater Supper Club, the one that helped him find his own voice in the first place. Amen. This is The Bible.
"There is at least a glimpse here of most everything Lambchop has done before, but ripped apart and reoriented within the context of what else is possible now." —NPR
"the kind of bold late-period triumph that could have only come from an old master playfully grappling with the tools of our uncanny present moment." —Pitchfork
“Recorded during the throes of the pandemic in a new location, Minneapolis, instead of Wagner’s home base of Nashville, it’s a celebration of expertly arranged chaos with a new collaborator in producer and pianist Andrew Broder and co-producer Ryan Olson.” —Aquarium Drunkard
"The Bible is unlike any other Lambchop album and yet it's like every Lambchop album all at once, the kind of fucked-up country / gospel / disco / jazz / torch song record that could only be made in Minneapolis by a Nashvillian with access to vocoders and a throat singer. It's dark and often sad, but also joyous, moving, contemplative and inspiring." —Brooklyn Vegan
