Album of the week : Damaged - Lambchop

Kurt Wagner has been making some of the most astonishingly beautiful music that I've heard over the years. This is the kind of music you may wake me up for any time, and this is the kind of music I'd love to hear being performed in a church or monastery (as Tindersticks did years ago in a small town in my country...)
Lambchop is as alt.country as you can get, and I definitely love it.
On Damaged the band brings us music that touches you to the very bone. Listen to the three songs below, and you'll catch my point... :

Paperback bible (mp3)
Beers before the barbican (mp3)
The decline of country and western civilization (mp3)

In addition, here's a live version of "Up with people" (mp3)
