Lambchop – Flotus
Well into their third decade, and Kurt Wagner's Lambchop are still thriving but, this new album, its title an an abbreviation – For Love Often Turns Us Still – (not First Lady of the United States!) is made out of pieces unheard of before. How? Well, songwriting is as well crafted as ever and Wagner's not afraid to experiment with the long format and deft electronica.
