Having recently graced the cover of our print edition (Issue 45- which you can order here) and receiving several outlets naming FLOTUS Album of the Year, Lambchop have announced the release of their 12-inch single, being released on August 8.  The single will contain a new version of “The Hustle” entitled “The Hustle Unlimited” along with a cover of Prince’s “When You Were Mine”.

Here’s Lambchop’s own Kurt Wagner on “The Hustle Unlimited”:

“Sometimes things can get out of control, an impromptu idea is presented, and you take that idea to a logical conclusion to see where it goes. In this case, Tony Crow [piano] came up with a rather ‘Love Unlimited Orchestra’ take on ‘The Hustle’ during a rehearsal with Andy Stack [drums, Wye Oak]. It seemed nuts at the time, but being rather nuts ourselves, I thought we should try recording it and taking it all the way to full realization. Plus, it was a great way to capture Andy’s tenure with us in the studio.”
