“Sunrise Surprise” (by Lemon Dots)

Album Description

CURATOR:
Released:April 20th, 2010
Length:00:01:56

When not sharing guitar duties in Home Blitz or making some industrial grind with York Factory Complaint, New York's Theresa Smith relegates some soundmaking to a project called Lemon Dots, and the new 7" (Labor of Love imprint) is a lygergic yet dainty slab of song-age. She describes:

Lemon Dots is hyperactive '60s girl-pop flailing in an undertow of magnetic hisses, squalls and squeals. Imagine The Maroons' "Out Tonight" clinging to an electric fence while being flayed by an out-of-control drum machine wielded by Lesley Gore. It's a shit show!

Sounds pretty accurate to me (except the shit part), it's a definite wedding of trad pop and slight distant-AM-radio damage you'd expect on a Bananafish single Dame Darcy might have been hovering around on. No banjos in sight though, just some fancy-n-tuneful pop decay especially on this particular track "Sunrise Surprise"
