In Akron, Ohio, four friends get together every Tuesday with gas station snacks and various instruments to see where the night takes them. They call themselves Lemon Quartet and although the project is relatively new, the group’s members have been making music together in various huddles and formations for the better part of two decades. While previous iterations can be loosely linked to Ohio’s vibrant late ’90s and early ’00s DIY rock scene that birthed The National, Guided by Voices, and The Black Keys, the music they create now is something entirely new – seemingly unbothered by scenes or time. Their latest album Artstfest on Last Resort is full of loose, yet lush repetition, it seems to function like memory—each dizzy melody recalling and rewriting what came before, subtly shaping each piece as time passes.
