Agree!  I loved this station when I started listening a couple of days ago, but yesterday and today...not so much. 
 
Which is why you should keep listening. I can't tell you how much Bill has widened my musical universe. Yeah, some stuff I don't like, but I tell myself I don't get it - yet....

It's where the original Dread Pirate Roberts retired to.

Well, Roberts had grown so rich, he wanted to retire. He took me to his cabin and he told me his secret. 'I am not the Dread Pirate Roberts', he said. 'My name is Ryan; I inherited the ship from the previous Dread Pirate Roberts, just as you will inherit it from me. The man I inherited it from is not the real Dread Pirate Roberts either. His name was Cummerbund. The real Roberts has been retired fifteen years and living like a king in Patagonia.'
I don't know what this music has to do with Patagonia, but it's cool.
Only two tracks in the library Bill?  This is a great track, enjoying it more with every listen.  Would have loved to have had it on my walkman many years ago when hiking at the southern end of Patagonia!
Ok, so now how about Lemon Jelly’s best songs... Please...

Cool, and just the sort of thing I expect on RP. An interesting factoid about the Argentinian part of Patagonia is that there's a large Welsh-origin community there (Wikipedia article). Strange but true. It was a minor complicating factor in the 1982 Falklands/Malvinas war between the UK and Argentina.


 
I agree with RP you do not know what to expect and THAT IS GOOD

Seconded.  Lemon Jelly is cool.  There are videos on Youtube you can check out.  I first heard them on a Pandora station I made and it was a trippy techno sounding song.  They do have a lot of variety.

I for one love Lemon Jelly. It's not for everybody, but is is varied and interesting. Maybe try it before you buy? I enjoy most all of the songs on this album if that helps any.

Thirded if that's a word!  It is all very gentle and quirky.  Listen to it all on Spotify (sorry Bill...) before you decide.

I would swear there is a sample from Tusk in this, but google has not been helpful.

Damnit!
The first half second I thought this was Twiggy Twiggy by Pizzicato 5.

Reminds me of Yoshida Brothers, (although I don't think that's what they were going for). All in all, not bad. 7

quoting myself {#Hearteyes}
I just came back from Patagonia and there was nothing there which sounded like this. Now I am back in groovy Santa Barbara and everything sounds kinda like this.
Kinda groovy.  I keep music like this, The Mermen, Palo Alto, The Bad Plus, Orbital, FSOL and other instrumental bands around to play when I'm working and voices would be distracting.
A bit Yello-like I think? Not a bad thing actually...

Well, thanks for the Geography lesson. Not sure the music fits, especially the sitarish bit. BUt ok...now I've learned something today at least. {#Tongue}

...the hell?..

...i think i confused this band with green jellÿ - very different indeed...
Nice groove...

pretty weird but cool
typical LJ
I thought it was Yoshida Brothers.
This is such a welcome relief after the unpleasant side trip into eclecticism's dark side (Finn Brothers>>Elvis Costello>>Mark Knopfler) that I'm not sure that I've rated it better than it deserves. Kool!

I don't mean to sound dumb, but the song really matches the place.

George Orwell wrote about his experiences in the Spanish civil war in "Homage to Catalonia". (Catalonia is a region in the North-East of Spain, where Barcelona is)
I don't know if the song title is related, but it immediately made me think of the book.

Flat out fun and a perfect groove.
EEEK, this used to be a nice diversion, now sounds too much like Dengue Fever :doh: , expect the screeching to start any second. :frustrated:
keep expecting to hear Devo's "Satisfaction" pop in....
wii would like to.. oh, wait cool!
yay! yay! lemon jelly on rp! yay!
I'm waiting for..."heyyyyyyy Macharana"

Lemon Jelly is delicious! Every disc is a fun one. Thanks RP!

ambient-ish...my kinda slow n mellow grooooove....
Cool, but needs something. Like a bag of hot, delicious, crispy french fries... but you're out of salt. Maybe a sitar?
not yellow enough for me

Heh-heh--- I opened the comments to write just that! Not only the voice; the whole instrumentation and rhythm are very Yellow-Like. Play this next to the "Car Race", and you wouldn't know it's a different band!
That voice sounds very Yello.

An edited version. Didn't do it for me like the full 9 minute track.
He started to go "Bouncy Bouncy.." but thought better of it...
Oooh yes!

Soundtrack of the times baby
this makes me want to drink tonnnnnnnes of coffee
Just involuntarily started dancing around the office...
This doesn't get played often enough. What a great 9-10 minute groove.
Laguna de Los Tres!
Tom Waits goes electronica! The latest sensation!

Sounds painful for the elephants and walruses.
It has grown to a ten for me. Bought the album from i tunes and have found some really good stuff, though eclectic. This is the best track, but the whole thing is defineatly worth a listen.
Nice groove! Like a snake slithering in the grass!
when this started I thought it was "Blood Makes Noise" by Suzanne Vega.
That's a shamisen plinking and scratching in the background ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shamisen It's interesting, but it's not fabulous.
I really like this music: Anne Marie
this may be an album i have to purchase! Great for work. :yes:
***king awesome
Unusual and somewhat psychedelic. I wonder if they like Lemon Curd?

Finally I hear some Jelly on RP!!! WOO HOO!!!

Yep, sometimes when there has just been too much Leo Kottke Covers, Neville Brothers and Saxaphone jazz I have to sneak over to SOMA to sooth my internal 007.
wow. this is cool. who knew. thank you, RP
this is homage to lemon jelly.

The opening sounded so much like Pizzicato Five's Twiggy Twiggy that I was preparing to dance The Frug for the next 4 mintues. This song was good, but I am dissappointed it wasn't Twiggy Twiggy.

And now for something completely different. Electric sitar? Love it
Great tune, and trippy album cover too, lookin' mighty 69-ish.
Man, that's cool.

Another fantastic song from Lemon Jelly. I'm waiting for the day that RP plays "Nice Weather for Ducks" from their Ky album...Please.
I agree. What a trippy and therapeutic tune. I remember it being on the LRC. Another $.99 to iTunes! May have to get their entire albums. Like everything I hear.
Cool tune! :bounce:

With the volume turned way down, it DID sound like Tusk. But not any more. And the volume is also way up now.

Ohh that song is something like summer days at the park in candyland on acid and speed!

I love how this song is so manifold. It starts off with that Mission Impossible-like melody before switching to twangy instruments (what are they?), and then the throat singing at the very end. I grooved to this the whole way through, yes I did
I am not convinced that any of the instruments are "real", I hear them all as samples from a keyboard....all electronic. It is a cool song though. :bounce:

Well, I'm hearing it too. The bassline in particular keeps threatening to turn into "Tusk." Without the marching band, of course.

Ha - part of a review I found on Yahoo! ... Lemon Jelly's inner Pizzicato 5 rears its head on "Homage To Patagonia", although, I dare say, Lemon Jelly shows far more restraint than its hyper Japanese counterparts with concentrated samples and well-crafted tunes. ??
Sounds like a remix of Pizzicato Five's "Twiggy Twiggy"...
