The Secret Of Letting Go - Lamb’s seventh album - is all about the space between sounds. At times sublime and celestial, at others a swirl like a desert sand storm the music offers a launch platform on which Lou Rhodes’ superlunary voice can take flight.
At times, the sound that Lou and musical partner Andy Barlow create is quietly evocative of sun-drenched horizons - contemplative and reflective, as on opener Phosphorus and the album’s final track - One Hand Clapping - a divine piece of music with all the radiance of a high summer sunset. At others its itchy and anticipatory, pointing towards moments of ecstatic abandon, like on the album’s first single - the brooding, building, boiling over Armageddon Waits and the dervish spinning, cyclonic Deep Delirium. And occasionally, it’s a quake - a whomping bass tone that seems to move through your very bones as on the album’s title track and Bulletproof, a track where the bottom end seems to be burrowing its way out of the track.
