Merge Records main-stay Lambchop… has a style that is distinctly their own, bringing together alt-country, chamber pop, jazz, and more with a deep (and awesome) sense of strangeness that completely cancels out any preciousness that the previously mentioned genres might imply. They’ve been putting out consistently great albums since the mid-90s, and their most recent
