Lambchop – “The Man Who Loved Beer” from How I Quit Smoking (1995)
The taste for Lambchop didn’t come easily to me. It took a good four years to feel alright around Kurt Wagner’s songs. But now that I do, it feels pretty good.
Most of their songs are highly- but loosely-orchestrated sighs of relief, boredom, or frustration. And despite their relaxed feel, the lyrics often indicate something disturbing, evil or, in the case of this song, violent.
