Lime Garden’s latest album, “One More Thing”, is a prime example of classic indie rock with a modern twist. Drawing on influences from bands like Remo Drive and Tacocat, the band brings a refreshing dose of humor and vulnerability to the indie music scene. While the album may not break new ground in terms of sound or style, it shines in its authenticity and charm.

From the opening track “Love Song” to the ironic “Pop Star”, Lime Garden weaves a narrative of love, envy, and self-deprecation. Frontwoman Chloe Howard’s vocals are both sweet and bitter, reflecting the dual nature of the band’s lyrical content. The songs explore themes of relationships, parenthood, and societal norms, all with a touch of wit and satire.

One of the standout tracks on the album is “Mother”, where Howard contemplates the idea of motherhood in a humorous and self-aware manner. The band’s use of autotune on “Pop Star” adds an extra layer of irony, questioning the authenticity of mainstream pop music. Throughout the album, Lime Garden balances vulnerability with humor, creating a unique and engaging listening experience.

While “One More Thing” may not revolutionize the indie rock genre, it excels in its simplicity and honesty. The band’s reluctance to conform to musical norms is a refreshing change of pace in a world of polished and manufactured music. Lime Garden embraces their imperfections and insecurities, turning them into art with a lighthearted touch.

On a scale of 0 to 10, I would give “One More Thing” a solid 7. While it may not be groundbreaking, it is a delightful and enjoyable album that showcases Lime Garden’s talent and personality. Fans of indie rock with a sense of humor will find plenty to love in this record.
