Lemon Sun - The Edge of Defeat (Track 14/20)
Album - Run With the Faithless (Sample/Purchase)
Label - Self-Release
Lemon Sun are four lads and a lady who coalesce to form a star of molten rock & roll at the center of LA's sonic solar system. They are led by charismatic singer Rob Kolar and Chris Knight (bass) and accompanied by sassy/sexy guitarist/keyboardist Melissa Dougherty, el gigante drummer Nick Rucker and guitarist Mike Shapiro. They have played at many of LA's best venues sharing stages with the likes of the Cold War Kids, The Killers, and other LA staples including Silversun Pickups, Monsters Are Waiting, and Run Run Run. Speaking of LA's best venues, Lemon Sun have released live recordings from their residency at the echo so go to Spaceland Recordings to order a copy and get a taste for their energetic brand of psychedelic rock influenced by the classics. Here's a video for "Telephone" directed by Jason Argyropoulos (Tree Film Works)
They will be playing at the Casbah (Sand Diego) on the 20th before taking respite for the holidays. Make sure to check them out when they come through as they have big plans for the new year. Special thanks to Larry Little (Future Sounds) for his help in introducing us to this great local band.
