"The Sky Has No Limits"

Dos,' the second album from Cincinnati’s Lemon Sky, is a masterful, contemporary spin on Rock classicism

Based on their name — inspired by a Kevin Bacon movie that was based on Lanford Wilson’s play — the members of Cincinnati’s Lemon Sky refer to their particular genre as “Citrus Rock.” - Cincinnati City Beat - Brian Baker


Lemon Sky, the Cincinnati psych-rock/prog-pop hybrids recently released Dos, their aptly-titled and long-awaited sophomore album. Highlighted by its three-pronged guitar attack—consisting of vocalist/guitarist Aaron Madrigal, guitarists Eric Cronstein and Ed “Shredward” Bruker along with bassist Steve “Phteven” Korfhagen and drummer Eric Keyes—they create a heavy yet highly-melodic brand of psychedelic garage rock that combines the classic rock pomp and stomp of Led Zeppelin, paisley pop melodies and the modern musicality of Mars Volta for a forward-thinking sound rooted in the past. - Dayton City Paper - Justin Kreitzer

"MPMF 2016 Day One: The Dawn of the Outdoor Era"

"On Friday night, I bailed toward the end of Future Islands, which was, as noted, exceptionally cool and original, in order to catch at least a little of Lemon Sky at the nearby MOTR Pub. - CityBeat Magazine

"Lemon Sky Micro Dos EP Release"

Cincinnati psychedelic rockers, Lemon Sky, are releasing their cleverly titled EP, Micro Dos, this weekend with a celebratory performance at MOTR Pub. Micro Dos follows their full-length album, Dos, released exactly 3 years ago in February of 2016.

The quintet is driven by 3 guitars (Aaron Madrigal, Ed Bruker, Eric Cronstein), anchored by a killer rhythm section (Steve Korfhagen-bass, Eric Keyes-drums), and topped off with soaring vocals (Aaron Madrigal) and intricate melodies. Their live performance is 100% worth catching. You’ll get all the nuances of a studio recording with all the extra power, energy, and little surprises that come with a live performance.

The modern indie rock meets classic rock EP is the perfect blend of familiarity and freshness. Between the pure rock-n-roll vibe of “I am One” to the progressive sound and unexpected melodies of “Moses Acid” you may not know what year it is or what genre you are listening to, but you won’t mind because it just works. I think their bio described their music best as “a forward-thinking sound rooted in the past.”

Come catch Lemon Sky with The Sublets (Cleveland) this Saturday at 9pm at MOTR! - Kaitlyn Peace
