Featured Lemonade stories

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 »

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 – “Neptune” Remixes

Lemonade’s reconciliatory R&B jammer “Neptune” leads the way, sensually, for their forthcoming Diver LP, and now here are four remixes for one of the year’s best tracks. On the bill: Italians Do It Better’s Mike Simonetti, Sinjin Hawke, Jacques Renault, and Lemonade’s own (Alex) Pasternak. Stream, here:… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: March 2012

This was an incredible month for free hip hop MP3s, and it was an incredible month for songs by Lemonade because “Neptune” is one of this year’s finest. And so the paramaters I gave myself with this month’s mix are as follows: Open with Lemonade’s “Neptune,” and create a track flow that blended but flipped… More »

Lemonade – “Neptune”

Last we heard from Lemonade, the San Fran-rooted/Brooklyn-based polyglot dance outfit, the trio delivered a take on the 1994 R&B jam “The Place Where You Belong” by Shai. This was a placeholder, filling the space between their highly recommended Pure Moods EP, and today. Based on “Neptune,” the first single from their forthcoming True Panther… More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We’re on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers’ (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »

Lemonade – “The Place Where You Belong” (Shai Cover)

Polyglot dance synthesists Lemonade are working on the full-length followup to their superfine Pure Moods EP, today offering a stopgap by way of this cover of Shai’s 1994 R&B jam “The Place Where You Belong.” Singer Callan Clendenin said “My only hope is [Shai] hear[s] this cover and they fell good when they do.” Download… More »

Kanye “Looking For Trouble,” Serenading Delta Passengers, Joining 30 Seconds To Mars

Single art wise, Pusha T gets some prime billing on Kanye’s latest G.O.O.D. Fridays track — conversationally, Pusha T is getting some prime billing thanks to the overall endorsement Kanye’s given him thanks to Pusha’s practical ever-presence on Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Fridays tracks. If there is one thing we should identify and endorse about West’s generosity… More »

Lemonade – “Remain In Jah (Chrissy Murderbot Juke RMX)” (Stereogum Premiere)

One of this year’s finer short-players came from Lemonade and their EP Pure Moods, and over its construction (and now its remix reconstruction), the trio’s shown a knack for tapping tasteful sounds, spirited remixers. The single “Lifted” has been re-upped here twice, expansively in the hands of Twin Shadow and later via the blissful, woozy… More »

Cruel Summer: Stereogum Summer Jams 2010

Welcome to summer, welcome to free and legally downloadable summer jams. Time to CELEBRATE on ROOFTOPS. But you know, oil spills. And crazy people waiting in lines for phones for hours. And poorly officiated soccer games. The world’s topsy turvy, and so then is this mix, to reflect its time and place. It’s America’s weekend,… More »

Lemonade – “Lifted (Le Chev Reunion Tour Remix)”

Here’s another take on Lemonade’s Pure Moods standout “Lifted.” Where the liquid-squished, dub and steel-drummed original was all sunsets and sandy hearts, this remix by Le Chev (the production project of Fischerspooner’s Michael Cheever) reworks the track into a late night swagger and bliss jam, shifted from a beachfront club come-on to the soundtrack for… More »

Lemonade – “Lifted (Twin Shadow Remix)”

Lemonade’s dubby, steel-drum hummed, liquid-squished Pure Moods come-on “Lifted” got me gushy twice over (in track and video form); enter George Lewis Jr. aka Brooklyn’s Twin Shadow (not to be confused with Brooklyn’s Twin Sister — twins hate it when you get them mixed up) to complete the trifecta. His remix recasts “Lifted” entirely, shifting… More »

Delorean/Lemonade/BRAHMS @ Mercury Lounge, NYC 3/29/10

Earlier today the dudes in Delorean tweeted “stage diving is the new move.” Which may just seem like good advice because it beats the shit out of stillness (unless we’re talking dirty), but I’ll decipher in case you haven’t made the best move of all in buying tix to see them yet: Somehow every Delorea… More »

New Lemonade Video – “Lifted”

“Lifted” is the first single from Lemonade’s excellent new EP Pure Moods. Along with Wild Nothing and Beach House, it’s dominating my playcounts this year. This track pits dubby bass to a riff of trickiing xylophones punctuated with sampled laughs and liquid squishes, the hum of rolled steel drums, a phased synth and vocalist Calla… More »

New Lemonade – “Lifted”

Percussive BK outfit Lemonade are working shit out on their great, heavily rotated new five-track EP Pure Moods, the followup to last year’s self-titled full-length debut. The trio’s tracks hit the dancefloor from all angles, filtering a worldly rhythmic sense and digital peripherals through their Brooklyn-based lens. Front and center are Alex Pasternak’s ferocious drumset… More »

CMJ ’09: Weekend In Photos

One last gargantuan batch of photos from an exhausting, exhaustive week of NYC showgoing. On Friday Jessica Amaya joined us at Doveman’s record release party at the Elevated Hole, a Chelsea loft owned by the Yale English Dept. chair Michael Warner. The room was a perfect foil for Doveman’s candlelit Conformist material, along with guest… More »
