Lemon Demon's Spirit Phone coming to LP, CD, and cassette “Hooks so good I get a rush off ‘em.”
-Anthony Fantano, The Needle Drop
Needlejuice Records is proud to announce the October release of Spirit Phone by Neil Cicierega’s Lemon Demon. Released digitally in 2016, this is the first time the album has been available on any physical format.
Available for pre-order now on a 180-gram double LP (in 2 haunting color variants), deluxe 2-CD set, and cassette tape, Spirit Phone has been remastered by experimental sound guru Mark Kramer with new art by Ming Doyle. Each format provides access to bonus tracks and an exclusive album commentary by Neil.
Lemon Demon - Spirit Phone - Whisper Smoke LP
All pre-orders of Spirit Phone are expected to ship by Halloween.Spirit Phone is a collection of 14 deviously catchy pop songs that lightheartedly explore such macabre topics as haunted mansions, confectionery cannibalism, Lovecraftian romance and 1980s economics. Bringing to mind the playfully ghoulish work of new wave acts like Oingo Boingo, the album presents its dark themes with mischievous relish. Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop awarded it an 8/10 rating and included it in his Best of 2016 list, praising its clever lyrics, high energy, and catchy songwriting.
Lemon Demon is the moniker for original music by web icon Neil Cicierega. As a teen at the dawn of the internet age, he was making a name for himself with innovative, diverse projects when the world was figuring out what to do with the new technology. His prolific work has spawned numerous viral touchstones, including Animutations, Potter Puppet Pals, and the acclaimed mashup albums Mouth Sounds, Mouth Silence, and Mouth Moods.
Among these many projects, Lemon Demon has been Cicierega’s most consistent outlet. From lo-fi beginnings in 2003, the band scored hits with 2006’s “The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny” and 2010’s “BRODYQUEST.” Cicierega spent 8 years crafting Spirit Phone, his seventh full-length album.
Needlejuice is an independent record label specializing in the physical production of alternative music, founded in late 2017 with the successful inaugural release of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s Polygondwanaland. “We’re really excited to be working with Neil,” said co-founder Austin Ash Lemon. “We’ve loved his stuff since we were kids and it’s an honor to be putting Spirit Phone out. Just as a fan, I can’t wait to get this LP.”
