Sounds of SXSW 2015 #25: The Lemons

It's getting to be that time of year again, y'all. That time in March when spring is tantalizingly close, and when bands from just about every corner of the earth (and the music press who loves them) gathers in Austin for SXSW. I know some folks think it's just a big industry schmooze-fest, but I still get a thrill out of checking out the (massive) list of bands and finding someone new to fall in smit with. The bands I'm profiling this year are bands that I would definitely seek out were I going to SXSW this year. If you're going to Austin, or even if you're not, give them a listen.

When life gives you these Lemons, life is pretty good indeed. (Bad) Punning aside, you need to give a little listen to The Lemons. Embracing the idea that "everybody's a Lemon," this Chicago outfit frolics sweetly through seriously 60s-inspired fuzzy pop, stopping just short of causing a sugar coma.
