A sunny walk on the strange side of electronic music
Lemon Jelly mix quirky samples with bright colors and naive melodies on 2002's playful Lost Horizons. Taking a page from the music libraries of '60s TV studios, acoustic guitar and shuffling breakbeats keep the mood breezily psychedelic. "Nice Weather for Ducks" ambles through nursery rhymes, country disco, and cha cha; "Return to Patagonia" tweaks easy-listening jazz; and "Experiment Number Six" pairs skittering drum 'n' bass with a doctor's spoken notes. Driving home their out-of-this-world ambitions, "Space Walk" incorporates an astronaut's radio transmissions as he floats above the earth.
