Lamb - 5 (2xLP - Limited 180 Gram Silver Vinyl)
In 2009, the original plan for Lamb's Lou Rhodes and Andy Barlow was to play a handful of summer festivals. A year and a half and 33 shows later, they've recorded a new album: 5. Eight years after Between Darkness And Wonder, the inspirational fires have been rekindled and we get to reap the benefits of Lamb's creative reawakening.
The juxtaposition of beat driven programming submerged by an electronic framework and poetry set to transcendental singer/songwriter melodies is still at the heart of their sound, but the (solo) experiences of the past few years have added greater depth and strength to their sound. A welcome and warranted comeback.
This remastered 2LP reissue contains 2 bonus tracks, one of which with Damien Rice.
