It wasn't so long ago we told you Lambchop would be shooting a video at Stadium Inn during their weekly wrasslin' night, and now the fruits of that filmic labor have hit the Internet. Embedded above, the meditative violence and enigmatic longing of "Gone Tomorrow" — featuring the aforementioned match between Jocephus Brody and Wolfie D. — as directed by Zach Spiger, who says he "approached the project more like a documentary and began to immerse myself in wrestling culture."
Read more from Spiger and from head 'Chopper Kurt Wagner over at NPR, where you can also stream the new record, Mr. M, today. Speaking of Mr. Wagner, you should read the interview with him that ran in the Guardian the other day, if you haven't already. He discusses many things, from being misconstrued as a redneck — "I was happy to be construed at all," he responds — to his friendship with the late Vic Chestnutt and the unease he feels about mourning his death publicly.
Mr. M is out Feb. 21 on Merge Records, and Lambchop plays somewhere TBA in Nashville on May 12, at least according to the latest itinerary we have.
