商品説明

Slowly crafted between 1994 and 1996, the debut album by Lullaby for the Working Class could be easily categorized along with the alt-country of Palace and Wilco that developed around the same time. And while the Nebraskan foursome certainly base their sound in the same acoustic Americana of these other bands, their extensive use of classical arrangements and chamber instruments gives Blanket Warm a gilded edge over its peers.

The hollow strumming on Good Morning builds to a crescendo with drums and violin that continues higher on Honey, Drop the Knife. The group's pop-writing skills are displayed prominently on Boar's Nest and Rye, while the lilting textures of Eskimo Song Duet and Turpentine show an equal ability to drop conventional arrangements and melodies in favor of mood and, in the case of the latter, which ends with the albums single histrionic outburst of voices which create an incredible impact.

Singer Ted Stevens approaches his vocals with a Midwestern neutrality that is mercifully free of hillbilly affect. In fact, Lullaby for the Working Class never resorts to any of the down-home cliches so often found in new roots music. Instead, the group achieves a majestic sophistication that is akin to finding a Faberge egg in the middle of a cornfield. ~ Joshua Glazer, Rovi

Lullaby For The Working Class

Lullaby for the Working Class hails from Nebraska and combines the '90s chamber pop sounds of Lambchop and Tindersticks and the country-rock stylings of Gram Parsons. Originally the band started out as a two-piece with Mike Mogis and Ted Stevens, both singer/songwriter musicians. To make the band complete, AJ Mogis (bass) and Shane Aspegren (drums) joined Lullaby for the Working Class and shortly
