“Disguised as a mixture of mainly Krautrock and Funk, spiced with a variety of stylistic elements, it is in truth a space adventure, a psychedelic, funkadelic, groovy trip.” The Wicked Lady

 

“Everything unfolds and fits back together, as if it were the most natural thing ever.” Rockblog.bluesspot

 

“Psychic Lemon’s headswirler of a debut record is a relentless sonic assault from start to finish” Strange Things Are Happening

Live reviews

“space-rock power; relentless drums and slicing bass lines with unpredictable raw guitar” Cambridge Music Reviews, 19th June 2017

 

“Since the release of their excellent debut CD … the sound has now evolved into sparser vocals and extended instrumentals with a remarkably full sound from the remaining trio.” – Cambridge Music Reviews, Sep 2016

 

“…twin effects-laden guitars and long instrumental sections recreate the atmosphere of heady 1960s experimental shows and they do it incredibly well.” Cambridge Music Reviews, May 2015
