Overview

A more literal return to form, Blood Like Lemonade builds on the familiar downtempo grooves that filled Morcheeba's 2008 effort Dive Deep, but this time with original vocalist Skye Edwards back in the fray. Right from the opening dusty, minor-keyboard chord, the album is instantly identifiable for fans as stony, late-night grooves combine with melodies that are both pop-minded and soul-spirited. All the organic elements that sit on top of the slow, rolling drum machines are back, as is the sinister underbelly of their early material, although here it's amped up a touch. The title track references "drinking blood like lemonade," while "Recipe for Disaster" begins "Wanna know why there's a dead guy in my dining room" before unveiling a story that's somewhere between the Jesse James legend and Natural Born Killers. The sweet tricks are Edwards using her velvet voice to make it all sound delicious, along with her ability to be equally effective on the breezy, positive numbers like "I Am the Spring." Add "Crimson," which would be the quintessential Morcheeba song if "Rome Wasn't Built in a Day" didn't exist, and Blood Like Lemonade exceeds expectations, coming in a close second behind fan favorite Big Calm.
