Lemon Demon

Lemon Demon are a five-piece rock band from Kingston, Massachusetts that started in 2003. Most of all the recorded tracks are only front man Neil Cicierega (who is also the creator of Potter Puppet Pals), but on live acts and certain recordings, he is accompanied by guitarists Charles "Chooch" Sergio and Dave Kitsberg, bassist Alora Lazilotta. and drummer Gregory Lazilotta, while Neil does keyboards and vocals. Lemon Demon has a very interesting sound and style that changes with just about every album. I'd give some bands that are similar, but when they develop a new sound with every recording, it's hard to give you some similar artists. They've always had a very electronic/alternative sound, so I guess if you're into alternative, indie, electronic, rock, and the like, then Lemon Demon may be a band for you.
They gained a huge amount of recognition with the release of their song The Ultimate Showdown Of Ultimate Destiny (from the album Dinosaurchestra). They then received even more with the release of BRODYQUEST. Other than those songs and some other fairly popular ones (Geeks In Love, 123456 Pokemon, Word Disassociation, I've Got Some Falling To Do, etc.), Lemon Demon doesn't get as recognized as they should (in my opinion).
They've been one of my favorite bands since fourth grade, and while many people fail to appreciate their work as much as I do, there's still a select few out there who love them too. Hopefully, some of you will be among the few.

Kinda pulling this outta my ass, but:
FFO: I Fight Dragons, Yip Deceiver, Anamanaguchi, The Brood Needs Food, They Might Be Giants, The Flaming Lips, CAKE, Hello Ninja, The Front Bottoms, etc.

I recommend you get anything everything from Hip To The Javabean  to I Am Become Christmas EP. The first two albums weren't too great (although I do like some songs on LftHCS), and the last two singles were joke-y songs.
