Stream Lambchop FLOTUS
Last year, Kurt Wagner, longtime frontman of the Nashville alt-country ensemble Lampchop, teamed up with two other Lambchop members to form a disco-house trio called HeCTA and to release an album. And this year, he’s brought some of that playfulness into his main project. The new Lambchop album FLOTUS — its title stands for For Love Often Turns Us Still — is full of AutoTuned digital blues, a strange step for a group that’s always been steeped in older forms of musical history. Somehow, though, it’s still a recognizably Lambchop album. We’ve posted two early songs, “NIV” and the 18-minute “The Hustle.” And right now, you can stream the entire album below, via NPR.
