Where Nixon was vast, in many respects its follow-up, the somewhat problematic Is A Woman, found Wagner and Lambchop more inscrutably withdrawn than previously.
Lambchop's last album, "Nixon," was wonderful and enchanting while this new effort is rather dull and monotonous because there are no real melodies here, just the lead singer languishing through melancholy lyrics in a sort of tongue-in-cheek cocktail hour meets country western. In "Nixon" the slow songs were beautiful melodies whereas in this current effort the songs sould like someone with a case of deep depression talking over half-baked instrumentals. Listening to 'Is A Woman' is like sinking back into velvet cushions and being bathed in bliss. Lambchop are known for an ever-expanding line-up - heading towards 20 at the latest count - and yet this is an apparently simple record with delicate, minimal instrumentation. The secret surely is that four people in a band make pop music, Lambchop have created a modern symphony. Is A Woman' is an astonishing, refreshing, life-affirming work.
Besides, the Is a Woman album sports some gorgeous, laconic looniness. The album version of "Is a Woman" kicks off the disc, and if you forgot it (who can blame you, this anti-anthem feels designed to slip through cracks), it's a downtrodden, jazzy tapeworm of a song that busts into subtly choral, bouncy reggae- stridently completing the full-length's comprehensive motif of intentional non-sequiturship.
Aw Cmon is a 2004 album by Lambchop. It was recorded and released at the same time as No You Cmon, and both were released together as a double album pack as well as individually. Lambchop's record label, Merge Records, report that the group saw these two releases as separate entities, while not dramatically different in style, serving as a sort of conceptual call and response to one another.
