NEW ALBUM "EVERGREENS" JUST RELEASED
The Soaked Lamb is a band of roots music with a particular influence of pre-war blues and jazz.
The first CD was recorded on Sundays, calmly during a whole year. Along the sessions, a typical Portuguese recipe of soaked lamb was served, hence the name of the band. Because of that, all the songs were recorded with a particular breath scent of cumin, wine and mint. That can actually be noticed when you listen to the songs carefully.
The new work of The Soaked Lamb is an album of versions, but most of all is a memory machine. There are melodies that do not deserve oblivion, which, more than death, is real death, yet more tragic and eternal.
The result has been named Evergreens, synonymous of longevity.
They have chosen the themes out of what they consider some of the greatest milestones on music, just a few examples of the most beautiful music artworks ever.
And besides these - which includes gospel,country, jazz, blues, samba and mexican music - they added three versions of their own songs and feeling free enough to transform blues into tangos. Actually, there are invisible bridges and strings that bind things that may not appear to be combined. To top it off, they added an original three tempo composition, in Portuguese language.
These are the 12 tracks, all recorded in the studios of Indigo: The Flower and Thorn, I Saw The Light, 4 Bedrooms, Midnight Special, Your Cheatin 'Heart, Blue Voodoo, La Llorona, Keep Your Lamp Trimmed and Burning, The Coffin For Two, Sixteen Tons, Tombstones Under Oak Trees and Hot Nuts.
To add more eternity to the very idea of Evergreens, they had the collaboration of Rodrigo Leao on the string arrangements for A Flor e o Espinho - the first single from this CD - and along with a string trio composed by Viviena Tupikova (violin) Bruno Silva (guitar) and Carlos Tony Gomes (cello). The choir Musicarte added many voices to the theme Midnight Special, while Jorge Fortunato,from 49 Special, played steel guitar in their version of Hot Nuts.
