“What An­other Man Spills” MERGE

Out now. First time pressed to vinyl in North Amer­ica!! Orig­i­nally re­leased in 1998, What An­other Man Spills cel­e­brates 20 years in 2018. The al­bum rep­re­sents a mile­stone in Lambchop’s ca­reer, but not in the mod­ern sense of a ‘land­mark’ re­lease. Build­ing on foun­da­tions that had once sounded al­most lit­er­ally creaky, it ex­pands upon the ten­ta­tive ma­noeu­vres they’d un­der­taken with the pre­vi­ous year’s Thriller

(1997) and ges­tures con­fi­dently to­wards its brassy suc­ces­sor, Nixon,

which would ar­rive in 2000 to wild ac­claim and pre­vi­ously unimag­in­able com­mer­cial suc­cess. In­deed, it sits at a cross­roads be­tween the band that Lambchop first emerged as, and the band that they would later be­come. In terms of pro­duc­tion, What An­other Man Spills rep­re­sented a huge leap for­ward, tak­ing bold stylis­tic strides to­wards un­charted ter­ri­tory.
