It was just about two years ago when a young San Francisco trio by the name of Lemonade wrote and recorded its debut self-titled album for Brooklyn-based label True Panther Sounds (also responsible for releasing music by Girls, Glasser, and Ty Segall). The band's record caught the attention of fans throughout the country, and garnered Lemonade high-ranking reviews on prestigious music websites (Pitchfork gave it an 8.3). After situating into a new Brooklyn home, Lemonade has prepared the follow-up to that debut--a five-song EP cleverly titled Pure Moods.

Sonically, the differences between Lemonade's first effort and its new release are vast. The trio dove deep into the tropical inclinations only hinted at the first time around. The EP contains larger elements of calypso, dub, and international beats alongside previous obsessions with straightforward dance music.

Calling Pure Moods an EP is almost misleading. While the release's tracklist does fit within the standards of an EP, its run-time is over 30 minutes long--making for more of a mini-album than the usual short sampler. Hear for yourself when Pure Moods comes out March 9 on True Panther Sounds.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
