Menace Beach - Leeds, England-based Liza Violet and Ryan Needham - present their new album Lemon Memory. The album is, for Menace Beach, an exercise in restraint, the fuzz and distortion turned down, big last choruses avoided. Liza explains, "The one ‘rule' thing we went into the album session with was to keep in mind that sometimes doing the opposite is much more interesting." If debut LP Ratworld was Ryan's record, Lemon Memory is very much a Liza record. Ryan explains "Liza got that look in the eye and a head-down-blinkers-on thing, and only a moron would try and get in the way of that. It's all about keeping those ideas in their purest form and diluting as little as possible." Written in Ibiza and recorded in Sheffield with Ross Orton (MIA, Arctic Monkeys, The Fall) Lemon Memory is the sound of a band finding their own identity, edging closer to some sort of grimy truth.
