Editorial Reviews

Product Description


A collection of three EPs released in limited quantities by this London duo (Nick Franglen and Fred Deakin), Lemonjelly.ky is what happens when you mix electronic psychedelia with downtempo beats, a selection of warm and organic sounds, a splash of sunshine, and a big dose of smiles. Coming across like a series of electronic fairy tales designed for warm, hazy afternoons in the park, Lemon Jelly are all about a good time, chill style. Kruder & Dorfmeister would approve, as would the Orb, but Lemon Jelly also have a stoner's sense of humor to accompany their warmly chaotic mixes. Take "A Tune for Jack," with its big sea elephants and smooth high-synth sound that evokes the Parisian duo Air, and then try the amusingly instructional voiceover during "The Staunton Lick." Both illustrate clearly that for Lemon Jelly there are no rules other than to let your imagination (fueled as it might be) wander where it must. Indeed, one of the most delightful things about this album, as you meander through stunningly lush pastures like "Homage to Patagonia" and the melancholic romance of "Kneel Before Your God," is its ability to marry great music with a genuine sense of goodwill and happy disorder. If Alice ever did manage to hear some tunes as she tripped about Wonderland, Lemonjelly.ky must have been the soundtrack she enjoyed. --Steffan Chirazi

Customer Reviews

One of the best albums I've heard and one of my favorite records of all time.
I discovered electronic music duo Lemon Jelly a few years ago when I was looking for instrumental music to play for – and hopefully soothe – my young son.
John Abbott
Just when you think the song is over it picks up again, kind of fooling the listener into thinking the next track has started.

From the sneering label on the cover ("if you already own [the] EPs there is NO REASON for you to buy this album") to the decadent packaging to the wonderfully tongue-in-cheek samples, "Lemonjelly.ky" is a delight from beginning to end. I picked it up on import last fall when it was selection of the month at Colette.
I'm going to eschew the Air and Kruder & Dorfmeister comparisons (really, why do we lump all of the downtempo artists together?), and just call this downtempo with a quirky pop sensiblity, that is so distinctly English.
"In The Bath" is truly soothing, while "Nervous Tension" is a delightful souffle of piano-infused lounge. "The Staunton Lick" takes a delightful pop hook and runs with it. Highlights for me in particular were the saccharine childishness of "His Majesty King Raam," the irresistible breakbeats and piano run in "Page One," and the gentle, touching "Come." Highly recommended.

What were British duo Fred Deakin and Nick Franglen thinking? They call themselves Lemon Jelly, register their website in whatever country owns the ky suffix just for the pun of it, and name their album the same. Then they blow all kinds of cash on glossy, hard-backed packaging and a color booklet, but leave their identity off the CD itself. Oh, and sticker it with a reminder if you own their EPs "there is no reason to buy this product."
Unless of course, you're in the States, where vinyl mini-records and kitch-lounge rarely bubble to the surface. Our treat then, that this dreamy cut & paste weaving of mellow sonic sounds, tape loops, and record snippets (dashed with spoken word instructional guides) now hits home.
Playing like a 1960's Mr. Scruff tribute band, or a folk group spinning cocktail tunes, songs `A Tune for Jack' and `Nervous Tension' remain imminently charming, as do the lullaby loops of `His Majesty King Raam' and starry-eyed acoustic closer `Come.'
Like the middle of a donut, Lemonjelly.ky is all sugar. Wisely, much of their material relies on fanciful, sophisticated melodies rather than courting wit to carry the show. Of course, they could have stripped away the dialogue and revealed a straight-up chill-out album for every critic's fancy. Maybe the duo realize the tangy aftertaste lasts longer with your tongue pressed firmly in cheek. 4.5 stars

Remember Bert Kaempfert? Well, believe it or not, but that's were this fabulous cd starts with... 'What do you do in the bath?' is the first question, followed by a mixture of Nana Mouskouri, hypnotized by a hypnotizer, a delightful dreamy but uptight rhytmn and a piano... Lemon Jelly mixes sounds from sea-elephants, loungy tunes and weird but always happy tunes. This cd makes a rainy day become sunny. Outstanding pieces are... 'In the bath', 'a tune for jack' that really lifts of when a baby joins the mambo. The song after the baby starts as if someone pulled the cord of a musicbox above his cradle. 'His majesty King Raam' is a lullaby we all want to fall asleep with... The staunton Lick is based on samples from a record called 'Teach yourself folk guitar'. Like the other songs, it plays with several samples merged into one great catchy rhytmn. To what you can compare this the best? Hmm, take the swing of Electrotwist, the humor of Mr. Scruff, the soundscapes from Kruder/Dorfmeister and the tempo of the Boys from Brazil. In other words, get this masterpiece if you haven't got any of their EP's yet.

I picked up this cd downtown, and proceeded to (attempt to) drive out of the madness. Rather than ponder the almost pointlessness of having a car in the city (San Francisco) during such times, I placed this cd in the player and (for some reason) started with track 2 ("nervous tension"). How profound it was...
As I became increasingly frustrated with the inability of most drivers to get from "point a" to "point b" without crashing into someone or something, I found myself mumbling the sampled "therapy" exercises to attempt to soothe my nerves! Did it work? Not really, but the sense of humor of this duo did.
This, simply put, is a great cd. It's got a very down-tempo vibe ala Theivery Corporation, K&D, Tosca, Ian Pooley or Jaffa, but without the darkness or melancholy associated with some of the down-tempo counterparts (i.e., Alpha, Craig Armstrong, etc.). Don't think for an instance that I'm suggesting melancholy is a bad thing; nay, it just has to be reserved for its proper setting.
This is a rather great summer-time-ish, poolside-ish, driving with the top down kind of vibe. Very soothing, very smooth, and filled with fantastic off the wall samples. Kind of Nightmares on Wax meets Captain Kangaroo and the cast of the New Zoo Revue.
Get the general idea? If so, I'm sure you will completely dig this one.
Also, great kudos on the packaging. Very slick.

Lemon Jelly is one of the most unique style's of music that I've heard. They combine speech recordings with looped samples from various sources and manage to create beautiful music. "A tune for Jack" has a nice jazz piano lick, a baby saying "oom-baby, ba-bum-ba-bum ooom-baby," and and a laid-back beat. At the beginning a man is in South America capturing a sea elephant and there are these barking noises that sound gross. It's hilarious!! These guys have a great sense of humor and it really shows on this collection of ep's. This album can be very thought-provoking on some tracks such as "page one." It's not like really deep metaphoric poetry like on most pop or rock albums because it is a voice recording probably taken from some book on evolution or something. But, the combination of the vocals and the sampled pianos, bass, guitar, and what not create an atmoshpere or mood that draws you into a different world as you ponder what the man is saying. A few of the tracks don't have any words, but they are also excellent. "Come" is such a dreamy, laid-back, and simple, song - a perfect closer. The harmonica meanderings on that song are so great. They take the song to a new level. It is hard to pick a favorite from such a diverse, yet equally good album, but "the Staunton lick," and "page one" are two of my personal favorites. But, seriously, this album maintains it's excellence from track one all the way to nine! It will take you on a rollercoaster of thoughts, and feelings that will surely leave you gaping and drooling for more sweet lemon jelly!
