Music

Solo Work

Lou Rhodes’ solo work is more organic and rooted in folk music than her work with her electronic duo Lamb. She has released three solo albums including the Mercury nominated Beloved One. Her fourth solo album theyesandeye will be released in 2016.

Lou’s 2006 debut solo album entitled Beloved One was shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize. Her second album, Bloom, was released in October 2007 with a third solo album One Good Thing in March 2010.

Lamb

Alongside her solo work, Lou is one half of electronic genre-benders Lamb. Lamb’s eponymous debut album up-ended the rigid idea of drum’n’bass by warming its distinctively chilly, tacheometric chatter with injections of jazz, classical, blues, techno and hip hop and giving it an intensely personal, highly emotional charge. The sweetly stuttering ‘Cottonwool’ and divine ‘Gorecki’ showed that drum’n’bass could do much more than just make feet move quicker – it could make hearts beat faster, too.

Six albums on, Lou Rhodes and producer Andy Barlow continue their journey of discovery with Lamb. Latest album Backspace Unwind was released to critical acclaim in 2014 and the duo embarked on a worldwide tour. It seems that the journey is not over yet …

After making music together over a period of almost 20 years it’s reassuring that new routes and approaches seem to abound. Over those years I think we’ve learnt that this journey needs no map; in fact tearing that map up, at every twist and turn, has become our regular gleeful practice.
