DJ Koze featuring Kurt Wagner

Make sure to check out the latest DJ Koze album ‘Knock Knock’

“Kurt Wagner of Nashville’s long-running country-soul-whatever combo Lambchop adds a careworn, sonorous touch to the slow, horn-kissed lullaby “Muddy Funster.” Though Koze puts him through effects — Wagner resembles no one so much as Laurie Anderson intoning “O Superman” — he doesn’t give the singer the transformative treatment Matthew Dear received on Amygdala, when Koze made his voice sound like the world’s most suave and unsettling bullfrog on “Magical Boy.” That kind of distending isn’t the point here. Even when he’s nipping and tucking his guests’ (and his) voices into odd angles, Koze is paying attention to their human qualities, their specific grain; they seem to set the pace more than the drums. On knock knock, Koze is more accessible than ever, without losing his essential strangeness.”
