Lamb - Backspace Unwind Album Review


A duo originally from Manchester consisting of Andy Barlow and singer Lou Rhodes, Lamb's defining moment arguably came in 1996 with 'Górecki', the fourth single from their self-titled début album. Operating in a trip-hop niche not exactly renowned for its ability to emote positively, it also seemed to be a commercial breakthrough, with Rhodes' almost childlike vocals giving up feelings of tenderness and devotion that charmed those looking to escape the laddish final throes of Brit pop.

Returns, however, have diminished for the pair since that point, leading to a seven year hiatus between albums which finally ended in 2011. One of the reasons is that both Rhodes and Barlow now have active solo careers, hence also the gap between 'Backspace Unwind' and its predecessor '5', and the music business being what it is these days, they're equally comfortable to now be operating without a label.
