Mad Mackerel’s Monday Morning Threesome

Mad Mackerel's Monday Morning Threesome. Here’s a good way to start the working week – with a triple helping of top notch, indie goodness.

First up is the return of alt-Country pioneers Lambchop who will release their first album since 2008 in the form of Mr. M, which is a tribute to the great Vic Chesnutt. If Not I’ll Just Die is a smooth, almost jazz inflected cut that is shot through with the typical lyrical scalpel of Kurt Wagner.

We also have the reflective I’ve Been Thinking, the b-side to the new single (a cover of Edie Brickell’s Circle) from J Mascis. It was a bonus track on the Japanese edition of Several Shades of Why.

And lastly, Lissy Trullie will release her long awaited, self-titled debut album in March next year. As a taster, this is the slow-burning Madeleine that also features another MM fave, Holly Miranda on backing vocals. There are echoes of the Velvets, even a bit of shoegaze maybe, but all is anchored by a brilliant distorted groove and her brilliant voice. This bodes very well indeed…
