The pastoral setting of a horse farm in Delaware isn’t where one would expect to find the harsh sounds that Lambsbread divines to be created. But it is in such a bucolic landscape that the three piece of Shane MacKenzie (drums), Kathy O’Dell (bass) and Zac Davis (guitar) set up shop to make what’s been referred to as “free hardcore.” Such discordance has drawn the attention of noise fans, including John Olson (Wolf Eyes), who had the band contriute to one of his American Tapes, and Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), who brought the band to England for the Nightmare Before Christmas event he curated for All Tomorrow’s Parties in December. Lambsbread will be releasing an album on Moore’s Ecstatic Peace label in the coming months, in addition to a whole slew of other recordings for various imprints over the course of 2007.
