Doug Fir

The wonderfully imaginative world of Kurt Wagner has gone through lots of morphing. Whether in reinventing the way most music fans think about Nashville songwriters with Lambchop's debut full-length, I Hope You Are Sitting Down (AKA Jack's Tulips), his moody ruminations on traditional soul, or the all-purpose tsunami of sound that is the recently dropped Mr. M, Wagner's imprint is anything but easily identifiable. Mr. M's delicately orchestrated, easy-listening blend of Bacharach-ian lounge ("Gar"), string-sensitive sonatas ("Mr. Met") and whispery winners (the unassailably great "Gone Tomorrow"), though, is one of Lambchop's most cohesive listens to date. And maybe even their best. Wagner's frail, often spookily funny Southern disposition ought to coalesce well inside the bunker-like confines of the Fir. RYAN J. PRADO
