Lambchop – Up With The People (2000)

YouTubeAmazoniTunes – Discogs

In 2000, we were on the crest of an americana wave. UK magazine Uncut raved about Lambchop’s  fifth album ‘Nixon’. The mixture of Kurt Wagner vocals and the Bacharach-like string arrangements were a little to smooth for my liking. However, the blend totally worked on ‘Up With The People’. The sound reminded me of the Paul Hardiman produced sounds of the early 1980s – particularly Lloyd Cole‘s early work – and with some gospel thrown in for good measure.
