LAMB

Temple present its 6th record to date, this time from Richard Wenger (R Weng) as Richard Lamb.

Drawing loosely on industrial, dub, and early Moog music, "Automatic Tango" is the result of a three-year experiment in minimal synth maximalism.

Often sentimental, mildly uncomfortable, and bordering on absurd, "Automatic Tango" will you have asking, who is Richard Lamb, and why is he so greasy?

Limited copies, six track mini album - cccheck! 


"The Secret of Letting Go" is Lamb's 7th studio album, written and recorded in the space of a year between their home-studio in England’s South Downs and in India and Ibiza. Continuing to push the sonic envelope, title track, "The Secret of Letting Go" was written in the moment the band decided they were splitting up and holds the corner for their endless experimentalism.

Lady Lamb

Even In The Tremor

    “I’m always teetering on the edge of self-sabotage,” says Aly Spaltro aka Lady Lamb. “The whole idea of this new album is the push and pull between calmness and chaos, joy and anxiety, self-loathing and self-love.” Nowhere is that more clear than the title track, “Even in the Tremor,” an ecstatic panic attack unspooling with all the far-flung places Spaltro has visited throughout the course of her writing process, including Berlin, Montreal, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater house in Pennsylvania and Nicaragua’s Masaya volcano, a touchstone visual for Spaltro in her conception of this latest project. “The past will kill the present / if I let it,” the singer repeats like an anxious dance party mantra for romantics and overthinkers alike.

    Even in the Tremor marks Spaltro’s latest full-length LP following 2015’s After and it’s a remarkable achievement because, among other things, it’s the first time in her career that Spaltro is singing explicitly about herself. “I’ve never let myself be this exposed before,” she says, “but this whole album is about facing who you are and fighting your way toward self-acceptance.” Between confessing a tantrum in a batting cage (“Little Flaws”), telling the story of her parent’s kiddie-pool baptism (“Young Disciple”) and singing openly about untangling her girlfriend’s wet hair (“Deep Love”), Even in the Tremor is deeply rooted in the people and places, extraordinary and mundane, that have shaped Spaltro into the self-determining artist she is today.

    Known for her keen observations of others, Spaltro now turns her multifaceted ruminations inward; She calls out from dreams, peers into churches, has fits of rage, and struggles to get out of her head long enough to love herself and those around her. “It’s taken me years to get here,” she says, “but I’m sort of done with hiding myself. I want to be as honest as I can because that’s why people turn to art. Anybody can tell the difference between bullshit and real vulnerability.” This commitment to creating only what is necessary and urgently felt is the key to appreciating Spaltro's fearless songwriting, as emotional as it is philosophical. Even in the Tremor signifies the arrival of her most sonically soaring and brutally honest album to date.

    Lala Lala

    The Lamb

      “The Lamb was written during a time of intense paranoia after a home invasion, deaths of loved ones and general violence around me and my friends,” says Lillie West, the Chicago-based songwriter behind Lala Lala. “I began to frequently and vividly imagine the end of the world, eventually becoming too frightened to leave my house. This led me to spend a lot of time examining my relationships and the choices I’d made, often wondering if they were correct and/or kind.”

      West initially started Lala Lala as a way to communicate things that she felt she could never say out loud. But on The Lamb, her sophomore LP and debut for Hardly Art, she has found strength in vulnerability. Through bracing hooks and sharp lyrics, the 24-year-old songwriter and guitarist illustrates a nuanced look on her own adulthood -- her fraught insecurity, struggles with addiction, and the loss of several people close to her.

      Across the album’s 12 tracks, West carefully examines the skeletons in her closet for the first time, hoping to capture honest snapshots of her past selves. Many of the songs show West asking herself agonizing questions about her life with a clever and hopeful curiosity. On the album’s first single and opening track, “Destroyer,” she reflects on feeling self-destructive and the delayed realization something in the past has irrevocably hurt you. In “Water Over Sex,” West laments her old precarious lifestyle, while trying to readjust to her newfound sobriety, and ”Copycat” confronts her feelings of alienation and boredom. “Some of this album is about being frustrated that everything is always repeating itself and being bored with your own feelings,”she explains. “‘Copycat’ in particular is about how everyone talks exactly the same on the Internet and how it sometimes feels futile to try and be yourself.”

      With Wolves The Lamb Will Lie is M G Boulter’s second full-length solo release, following 2013’s The Water & the Wave. Relocating this time from the shores of the Thames Delta in Essex to the peak district of Sheffield, Boulter has worked closely with award-winning producer Andy Bell (Bellowhead, Seasick Steve and Teenage Fanclub) to produce an album of lyrical depth and quiet brilliance. As with former projects, Boulter has surrounded himself with an array of musicians from different genres to help forge his vision; here one finds Ben Nicholls (The Full English, Seth Lakeman), Toby Kearney (These New Puritans), Sheffield songwriter Neil McSweeney and folk artist Lucy Farrell, among others. With Wolves The Lamb Will Lie reaffirms M G Boulter’s ability to conjure up compelling stories and mesmeric musical arrangements.

      M G Boulter is the principle songwriter and lead singer of Southend-based roots-rock band The Lucky Strikes and is a much sought after session musician who has toured with The Duke and the King, Simone Felice and Blue Rose Code, as well as recording with Dirk Powell, Rosalie Deighton and Vera Van Heeringan among many others. He has most recently been touring as a member of BBC Folk Award winner Emily Portman’s band.

      Mark Ernestus' Ndagga Rhythm Force

      Lamb Ji

      This latest release from German legend Mark Ernestus sees the Basic Channel man head deeper into the mother continent, further embracing Mblalax derived, spiritual rhythms and immersive dubspace. Hypnotic and otherworldly "Lamb Ji" puts you under its spell from the off, filling a carnernous soundscape with echoed vocals and occasional guitar while the Nder, Saba and Tama tesselate into an irresistible polyrhythm. Imbued with the typically exquisitive Ernestus sound design, "Lamb Ji" totally overwhelms your senses and transports you directly to the spirit realm. In case there was any doubt that the power lies in the ancient hide of those drums, Mark flips the riddim into dub mode on the B-side, rounding off another essential release.

        With a handful of previous releases on Rebirth and NRK, Nufrequency return to Rebirth with a new singer in tow - Maggie Reilly - and a new 12". Obviously the big noise on this are the Wolf + Lamb remixes, which add extra atmospherics and an almost post-dubstep broken-house production tilt to "My Angel". Side A features a full vocal version, weaving Reilly's folk-tinted voice into that deeper-than-deep sound, while the flipside offers up a dub. This 12" also features a Daze Deten 'Cinematic Remix' - one for the driving tech-house heads.

        Between Darkness And Wonder

        While many of their contemporaries have suffered from 'difficult fourth album' syndrome (or havn't even got that far!), Lamb are back with what are their finest set of tracks to date! The songs and Louise Rhodes vocals are allowed to shine through the dense, multi-layered pastoral-electro-acoustic sounds creating a richly textured set of tracks.

        ReGenesis

        Lamb For Supper -Live 2001

        To be influenced by a band is one thing to assume the identities and style completely is quite another. Enter ReGenesis, the UK Genesis tribute band whose whole ethos is to be a replica of the original to the best of their ability. Ability they have and as they run through "Supper's Ready" and tracks from "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" live in concert the audience is really enjoying it. Still it must be said that ReGenesis aren't on (and don't have) Charisma.
