"‘64 - ‘95," Lemon Jelly

Alex Slawson & Herman Snell

Who would have thought that down tempo and fun could exist in the same music, given the melancholic preponderance within this genre to date. Lemon Jelly have proven time and time again that chilling out doesn't have to be synonymous with despondency- it should be and is, in their groove laden world, a fun experience that should be shared and enjoyed over numerous listens. On "'64 – '95," Lemon Jelly put themselves under their microscope of influences by using as many found samples from their discography as they can muster, thereby running the gamut of genres with their intense, DJ set styled sound. From metal and 70's pop to Euro house, from R&B to punk, their latest is smoothly schizophrenic in it's slice and dice approach to sample heavy grooves. But, only Lemon Jelly can pull this off with a simultaneous grin seeping out of the speakers, compelling the listener for one more ride. Hop on this bus and you won't want to return to the typical dismal down tempo of yesteryear- this is a promise!
