Lambchop released a track last week off their upcoming album Mr. M, out February 20th. “Gone Tomorrow” is a pleasant seven minute epic of two parts, the latter half more subdued and retrospective and the former providing the exhilarating alt-inspired trademark of the Nashville-based Lambchop. With the band being closely associated with alternative country,”Gone Tomorrow” is more indicative of their developmental post-rock leanings, but you can still expect plenty of twang. It’s a nice precursor to what should be a satisfying release.
Lambchop released their first album, I Hope You’re Sitting Down/Jack’s Tulips, in 1994, back then proclaiming themselves “Nashville’s most fucked-up country band.” They have grown up in several ways since then; frontman Kurt Wagner has crafted a winning discography that Mr. M, their 11th album, should add nicely to.
