Brooklyn still be dancin’. Lemonade stopped by the Internet today to release “Skyballer.” It’s a disco track first, blending synths from Vampire Weekend and the Drive soundtrack with African drums of every shape and size. Our old friend the traffic whistle also makes an appearance, and together they make a energetic body-shaker that, without it’s percussion, would be downright melancholy. It’s the kind of effect you get with some XX remixes. This is the second new track we’ve heard from Lemonade since “Perfect Blue.” With new buddies like L-Vis 1990 joining the West Coast transplants’ production squad, one can’t help but stroke the chin slowly and keep the ears open.
