In the relatively short period of eight years, from 1996 to 2004, the Manchester duo Lamb managed to create some of the most gorgeous music in recent history. Those familiar with them likely understand exactly what I'm talking about -- just how prodigious the band's talent was when it came to writing achingly moving songs -- and probably need to read no further. For the uninitiated, however, it'll be a rare treat to be able to turn you on to something this special.
Here are Lamb's two biggest singles:
First up, from their 2001 album What Sound, this is a stunningly beautiful video, for an equally lovely song called Gabriel.
