CDBaby Review: 4 Stars!
It's always a good sign when you can't sum up a group in a
few words, or even a few sentences. Little Lemon is two people,
a man and woman, from Los Angeles. So, there's your broad
summation. Pinning down the music is tougher. The first two
tracks on this long EP/short full-length use acoustic guitar
as the base, adding rich melodies, appropriately sparse piano,
and lyrics that are both heartbreaking and self-affirming.
The third track is harmony-heavy a cappella, a quick jaunt
accented with snaps and hand claps. "Feel U" is
the fourth cut, a song that brings in some synths and makes
for infectious dance music. "U Walked Away" starts
with piano, adds some strings, and features initially timid
vocals that open up perfectly. "Follow U" gives
a nod to Liz Phair-style 90's rock, while "Sick"
goes back to the acoustic, but layers thick keys on top, steering
it all towards an effectively big ending. "Wanna Be With
U" (is the title making sense, yet?) is a great one to
end on, an emotionally honest and soul-baring track that assures
things go out on a high note. There's a lot of diversity here,
but the common thread is clear: great production, great musicians,
and songs that you're sure to carry with you.
