The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Last week in this space, I wondered where the hell all the Halloween-themed videos were. They all finally showed up this week — including a few today, which puts them out of contention for this week’s list. But some of the best videos of the week weren’t dark or spooky at all. They were technicolor… More »

Lemonade – “Orchid Bloom” Video

Lemonade’s @LILINTERNET-directed video for “Orchid Bloom” is a dizzying look at our darkest nights, those ones when you’re drunk and maybe a little high and your mind keeps flashing back to a past love, where your whole being is filled with a desire for a missed connection. Subtitles stand in for our own subconscious worrie… More »

Lemonade – “Durutti Shores” Video (NSFW)

Lemonade released their third LP, Minus Tide, today and put out a video for album track “Durutti Shores” to mark the occasion. It’d be disingenuous to call the video sunny, though it does take place in a beautifully sunny place, because there’s a dark pall that resonates over the whole affair. From some gross-out image… More »

Lemonade – “Minus Tide” & “OST”

The New York trio Lemonade made their name by crafting hazy synthpop jams, and three albums into their career, they’re sticking with the sound that brought them to the dance. The band’s new LP Minus Tide arrives in a couple of weeks, and they’ve already let the world hear their songs “Stepping,” “Orchid Bloom,” and… More »

Quit Your Day Job: Lemonade

Quit Your Day Job is a series that ran on Stereogum from 2007 to 2013, and in that space, we talked to dozens of indie artists — from Girl Talk to the National to Deerhunter to the Hold Steady — about the work they did when not making music, the things they did to make,… More »

Lemonade – “Come Down Softly”

The Brooklyn band Lemonade will soon drop a full album of warm, rippling, reverb-heavy synthpop on the world; their Minus Tide album arrives next month, and we’ve already heard the early tracks “Stepping” and “Orchid Bloom.” The third early song they’ve shared is “Come Down Softly,” a track that feels like sunlight hitting your ears.

Lemonade – “Orchid Bloom”

After a quiet couple of years, Lemonade announced a new album, Minus Tide, and shared the gorgeously disorienting “Stepping” a few weeks back. New single “Orchid Bloom” is a similarly effervescent gem of swooning electronic dance-pop, effortlessly marrying rhythmic propulsion with Callan Clendenin’s soaring vocals. Although the trio relocated from San Francisco to Brooklyn, their… More »

Lemonade – “Stepping” (Stereogum Premiere)

The first thing you hear on Lemonade’s Minus Tide is the sound of an impossibly crisp drum machine quickly tumbling around before bleary synth stabs bleed in. It opens the album with the feeling of fast-forwarding and moving in slow motion at once, and it’s disorienting in the best way possible. Even as the song… More »

Lemonade – “Skyballer”

A few months ago, the Brooklyn warehouse-pop duo Lemonade came with a new free-download single called “Perfect Blue,” which married DIY grit to radio-pop sweep. Now they’ve followed it up with another one. The six-minute “Skyballer” is a lush, expansive bit of dance-pop, co-produced with L-Vis 1990. The track that combines acid-house thump with headblow… More »

Lemonade – “Perfect Blue” (Stereogum Premiere)

Brooklyn dance-rockers Lemonade, fresh off of their 2012 album Diver, have a new single up online called “Perfect Blue,” and it sounds like a particularly sensitive relic of the late-’90s boy-band era that’s been fed through whatever filters they use to make scuzzed-up DIY Flabush-warehouse dance music. The group also has a few shows coming… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: December 2012

It’s the last Monthly Mix of 2012, sweet people. We did it! It hasn’t been an easy run over in this corner of the blog, to be honest. This year saw an ever-diminishing store of free MP3 downloads, as artists increasingly preferred promoting their songs in a streaming fashion, via Soundcloud and its ilk. Which… More »

Lemonade – Ice Water/Big Changes Remixes

This year, Brooklyn-via-SF polyglot dance/rock travelers Lemonade released their somewhat bummed out, fluid and R&B-laced LP Diver. It contains one of the songs of the year in “Neptune” (see also Dev Hynes’s memorable cover). It also contains “Ice Water” & “Big Changes,” a pair of tracks which the band asked their friends to remix. The… More »

Young Dreams – “Fog Of War (Lemonade Remix)”

You know that a label believes it has a good thing on its hands when a remix EP is commissioned, featuring three redux champs, for a band’s debut single. In the case of Modular and Norwegian young guns Young Dreams, it seems like a wise enough investment. Based on what we know of them, anyway,… More »

Blood Orange – “Neptune” (Lemonade Cover)

Neptune,” the R&B-dazed early-2012 track from Brooklyn dance-rockers Lemonade, might be the best thing that group has ever done. And now their friend and fellow Kings County polyglot Dev Hynes, otherwise known as Blood Orange, has recorded his own version of the track, stretching its wistful drift even further. Hear his version below. More »

Lemonade – “Neptune” Video (NSFW)

In March, Brooklyn’s Lemonade gave us the sterling “Neptune,” as well as some remixes a little later on, and now the group’s come through with a clip to match. It’s a pretty thing awash in cerulean tints and skin, featuring many close-ups on Lemonade lead singer Callan Clendenin, who’s doing some major league yearning. House… More »
