Groovy Bass Funk And Sultry Saxiness – Here’s The Brand New Dancefloor LP ‘THE LEATHER LEMON’ By Brooklyn Act P.E.

On Turn Up The Volume’s stereo today

27 March 2022

Band: P.E.
Who: Funky team from Brooklyn, US

Press info: “ This sophomore album, The Leather Lemon, ushers in a new era
for the New York band. A wild ride through chewy bubblegum pop, sweeping synthetic orchestrations, and mutant club beats, the album slides ever closer to the fully-realized
pop sensibility only winked at with their debut album Person (2020) and subsequent

Turn Up The Volume: Expect groovy bass funk, sultry sax flashes (I thought,
instantly, of saxophonist Andy Mackay from legends Roxy Music), seductive vocals
and most importantly tantalizing tunes (Blue Nude / Contradiction Of Wants / New
Kind Of Zen,
and The Reason For My Love). And P.E. mix it all the right sparkling way,
with vivid verve, effervescent effect and synth waves. I’m quite sure that their fellow townsmen/women Bodega and Gustaf live around the corner.

If you want to take a break from spinning yourself dizzy then moody and jazzy pieces
like The Leather Lemon, Tears In The Rain and Majesty will calm you down. And for fans
of sound wizard Aphex Twin bizarre track 86ed will satisfy them. Lyrically, it is mostly
about relationship-related reflections and some enigma here and there. Check
these lines…

French kiss to keep the peace,
French fuck to keep the peace!

Sweet Acid in the wound, suck on it.
Leather Lemon, Strawberry Cut.
Leather Lemon, Let’s stay all day in bed!

Out of tune and muddled,
forgive the band.
Bleached bones of trouble,
lost in the grass.

I don’t want that life.
I don’t want that majesty.
I don’t want that life.
I don’t want a tragedy.
