Lemon Jelly

Posted on

This English duo are known for their bubbly, gently psychedelic music based on everything from children’s rhymes to self-help records. Their third album’s title, ’64-’95 refers to the fact that they’ve sampled songs from 1964 to 1995, including tunes by New Zealand crooner John Rowles and alterna-progressive rockers Masters of Reality. It’s an admirable creative stretch, but the resulting mash-ups are little more than pleasantly diverting. By spreading themselves too thin, the Jelly have lost some of the tang in their thang.
