Thirty Pounds of Bone - The Taxidermist
Lamb was born in Scotland's Shetland Islands, but now resided in Cornwall, where he recorded The Taxidermist. Remarkably, Lamb played all of the instruments and provided all of the vocals. The album is out now via Scottish label Armellodie Records on vinyl and as a digital download, and you can stream and buy it at the Bandcamp link below. An example of the more shoegaze/dreampop approach are "Before I'm Done", "All Your Sons", and "Expelled". "Two Birds in the Brine" and "Your Walk" are more representative of Lamb's acoustic folky side. If you already are a fan of Thirty Pounds of Bone you probably need no further encouragement to investigate this release. If this artist is new to you, I think yo will find this to be his most accessible work to date, and well worth your time.
