The Altered Statesman and Kurt Wagner
Steve Poulton, aka "The Altered Statesman", and Kurt Wagner of Lambchop recorded this split EP with multi-instrumentalist and engineer, Joe McMahon. Released in 2012, Something Missing features two dreamy numbers by the Statesman and two straight shooters from Wagner that would later appear on Lambchop's Mr. M album as fully orchestrated tracks. Poulton and Wagner share band duties with McMahon and a rhythm section comprised of native Nashville drummer, Scott Martin (Lambchop alum, HeCTA), and bassist, Michael Backes (Bobby Bare Jr/Sr, Chelsea Crowell). The result is a sweetly mellow mix of country soul jazz. LIMITED PRESSING.
