Lemonade – Minus Tide

Propelled by decadent, dance floor-ready albums by Ratatat, Crystal Castles, and Lindstrøm, 2008 was a hallmark year for indie electronica. Disco revivalism reigned supreme. As if to cement that resurgence, Lemonade dropped their self-titled debut, with bold, relentless tracks like “Big Weekend’ and “Real Slime” signaling plenty of promise for the Brooklyn-via-San Francisco trio. Unfortunately, that earnestness has since waned. While the group went on to release 2010’s shimmering Pure Moods EP, on which they explore expansive soundscapes and tropical rhythms, they fell flat on their second full-length, Diver. Gone were the ecstatic beats that pulsated throughout their debut album. The trio’s penchant for excess had devolved into a watered-down, languid minimalism — a trend that persists with Minus Tide.
