New Old Indiepop from Baby Lemonade
You’ve got to leave it up to Roque and Cloudberry Records to unearth some old indiepop gems we can all clamor about. He’s one of the few true indiepop fans still writing and unearthing acts all the time, and then putting his money behind it, as he’s now doing with Baby Lemonade. The Scottish outfits had a handful of singles and an album in the 80s (note: this is not Arthur Lee’s backing band!), but other than a few blips on some 2000s compilations, they went largely unnoticed and unremembered. That’s a sad thing, as you’ll hear below; this track sounds like it could fit perfectly into any lineup I’d dream up; it’s got that bouncing rhythm section and those sharply saccharine vocals that are destined to charm your socks off. Press play. Have fun. Look for a new compilation of music from the band this Spring!
