As far as new artists go, their aren’t too many that can outdo the leverage of Lambchop. While there are always guitar epics out there his new single “Police Dog Blues” is easily worthy of your ears. The six minute epic shows hat they’re still on top of their game while readying their new album The Bible.
Though this is a song, in many ways it plays out like a TV show. The imagery alone shows a world at its end while the music high lights it. The segues between normal and pragmatic sung sets is fabulous while the imagery is just as chilling. The backing vocals are also as churned where it all sounds epic in how it plays out. As bodies of police officers wash up they form their own forms. It’s rather beautiful.
The song can be heard above via YouTube or wherever you stream music. The Bible is out September 30 and can be preordered from Merge Records here.
