Reviews for Frequency Rhythm Distortion Delay (2018)


“A complete work, a magnum opus that exhilarates and leaves the listener spellbound.” — Dayz of Purple and Orange

“They are becoming pioneers for the new wave of modern Krautrock.” 9.2/11 — Rotation 11 (Editor’s Pick)

“A remarkable achievement which cements Psychic Lemon as one of the most exciting and interesting bands in the UK at the moment, at least within the ever lengthening psychedelic circles.” — Echoes And Dust

“Psychic Lemon clearly have a distinctive sound and right now they stand above the shoulders of many of the established modern psych acts.” — Atom Heart Mutha

“As I write this it is not yet the end of 2017 and I am already starting to think that I may well have heard one of 2018’s albums of the year. This, for me, is an absolutely brilliant piece of work” — Psych Insight

“This immense collection of five tracks is explosive, exquisite and quite possibly one of the best albums that I’ve heard in some time.” 5/5 — Primal Music

“If you’re looking to be amazed by a new band emerging in the past few years, Psychic Lemon is a name for you. They find themselves in very good company on today’s UK psychedelic music scene, but there is something about their striking appetite for richness and intensity in sound which makes their two albums, so far, irresistible.” — aLive Reports

“Psychic Lemon really do feel tuned in to Britain’s psychedelic legacy and are broadcasting loud and direct” — Was Ist Das

“Conclusion: Buckle up and take off – Frequency Rhythm Distortion Delay is the British response to the German music invention called Krautrock, and they are even so brave as to neglect the psychedelic influences of the Pink Floyd brand and still sound great.” 13/15 —

“The whole thing is so enthralling that at the end of the 42-minute season of “Frequency.Rhythm.Distortion.Delay” you can not avoid playing the album again from the beginning to once again enter the Maelstrom of its Krautfunk.” 10/10 — Pretty in Noise

“By the end you’ll have convinced yourselves that Psychic Lemon are the spiritual heirs to god-knows-who (insert name of your favourite space/acid/psych rock icons here) and you may well be right.” — Terrascope

“We are not sure if Frequency Rhythm Distortion Delay is the last great record of 2017 or the first essential album of 2018” — Thee Psychedelicatessen
