LAMB: B'Line

My friend Steve confessed to me last weekend that Lamb is his favourite band, like ever. I was quite intrigued! If you followed electronic music in the 90's, Lamb was always slightly peripheral of the whole mainstreaming of trip hop type bands like Portishead, Massive Attack, Sneaker Pimps or Morcheeba. They skittered around mass success, not compromising their menacing lyrics and fractured rhythm programming. Well, the band is on hiatus at the moment, but lead singer Lou Rhodes recently released a solo record of folk tinged eloquence to critical acclaim. That album was nominated for this years Mercury Prize, but subsequently lost out to those other mammals, the Arctic Monkeys. This music video is from the Lamb album Fear of Fours, and this freakshow metamorphosis music video, directed by Hammer & Tongs, plays on the tempo switch up of the music. She seems so sweet and unassuming, then Blammo! - Bobbleheaded insanity. Rather clever, indeed. Watch the music video (qt).
