Tender Warriors Club confirms Lady Lamb’s (aka Aly Spaltro) quiet emergence as one of her generation’s most gifted songwriters. She combines dense symbolism and metaphor with intimate autobiographical portraits, and each song comes packed with lyrics that refuse to leave your mind, some startling in their simplicity (“If I see you when I look in my own eyes / How could I ever despise myself again,”) and others that come out swinging with their poeticism (“loneliness she can be a whore / I take her to bed, I’m so sure she won’t be there in the morning”). While technically an EP (seven songs and 32 minutes), it feels more like a long-player, and it’s far more cohesive and essential than your average EP.

Musically, Spaltro takes a stripped back, acoustic approach on this record that speaks to the intimacy of these songs. It’s not so much that her performances are left raw or exposed—in a way they’ve always been that—as much as they draw out a different side of Spaltro’s voice, one that made brief appearances on her last few records but arrive here in breathtaking form throughout.
