For Lambchop mainman Kurt Wagner, the group\'s 10th album, \"Oh
(ohio),\" marks a big change for the Nashville country-soul
\"I had an idea that I would write songs that could be
performed solo, so I could go out on the road,\" Wagner tells
Billboard.com. \"I\'ve always heard that\'s a way of working, but
I\'ve never tried it.\" After a few tours last fall, Wagner had
laid the groundwork for what would become the 11 tracks on
\"Oh,\" due Oct. 7 via Merge.
\"It wasn\'t like I wanted to solidify them, but I wanted to get
them to a point that was different from where they usually
are, when I bring them to the band,\" he explains.
At times, Lambchop has been comprised of 20 or more members
contributing at once, but this time, the core group was
limited to eight, including Wagner himself. \"The process was
just to back away and let the guys do what they do, and in the
end, it just sort of balanced its way out,\" he says.
\"I didn\'t do solo work before, because I wanted to keep the
emphasis on Lambchop \'the band\' as much as I could,\" he
continues. \"I think just because I was looking for a different
approach to writing it, to making music, I said, \'Well, I just
gotta go ahead and allow it.\'\"
The singular approach Wagner invokes manifests itself with the
album\'s mellower vibe, but the material is still chock full of
his trademark idiosyncratic lyrical twists.
Wagner will showcase the \"Oh (ohio)\" tunes on a brief solo
tour this fall, with dates scheduled for Los Angles (Oct. 2),
Toronto (Oct. 6) and New York (Oct. 8).
