Tonight’s thread is dedicated to the British electronica duo Fred Deakin and Nick Franglen, aka Lemon Jelly.
Lemon Jelly released three critically acclaimed EPs which won them a record deal with XL Recordings in 2000. Lost Horizons was their big breakout, the first of three full-length albums before they went on hiatus in 2008. They were known as much for their wonderful record sleeve designs – created by Deakin – as they were for their playful, sample-heavy tunes and fun live shows. I still have this very distinct memory of hearing “Nice Weather For Ducks” in a clothing store in 2002 and thinking, “What in the hell is this?!”
Have a good night everyone, and try to stay sane.
