Orange & Lemons Has Come Full Circle With The 15th Anniversary Edition Of Their Debut Album

June 1, 2018

15th Anniversary Edition
Orange & Lemons

Release Date: June 8, 2018
Label: Lilystars Records

For years, fans of Orange & Lemons have been clamoring for a re-issue of the band’s first album, Love in the Land of Rubber Shoes & Dirty Ice Cream (originally released in 2003). Now that O&L has reformed (2017) as a threesome of Clem Castro (vocals/guitar), JM del Mundo (bass/backing vocals), and Ace del Mundo (drums/backing vocals), they are definitely back with a self-produced, complete re-recording of the album — plus a couple of bonus tracks!


  1. A Beginning Of Something Wonderful
  2. Just Like A Splendid Love Song
  3. Kailangan Kita
  4. My Butterfly
  5. Armageddon Is Coming To Town
  6. She’s Leaving Home
  7. When I’m With You
  8. Isang Gabi
  9. Hey, Please
  10. Days And Nights

Bonus Tracks:

  1. If I Could Speak My Mind
  2. Lovers Go, Lovers Come

Pre-Order on iTunes / Bandcamp
Spotify Exclusive Release: June 1, 2018

Fifteen years ago, this landmark release paved the way for the band’s commercial success and catapulted them into poster boys of Philippine indie music, with their British-inspired songwriting style and pop sensibilities indebted to the likes of The Beatles, The Smiths and other ‘60s and ‘80s pop music. The band was hailed as Best New Artist in the 2004 NU Rock Awards and eventually landed a major record label deal. The rest was history. Fans privy to Orange & Lemons’ history will know that when they officially disbanded in 2007, Castro immediately started his own indie record label, Lilystars Records, and produced indie records in a grassroots, hands-on manner. This time around, an older, wiser Orange & Lemons is in control. And the result is brilliant.

There is something distinctly sassy and kiss-my-assy about the way Castro sings the re-done tracks. The 15-years wiser Castro has clearly lost the ability to take himself too seriously. His voice is his own: relaxed, light, and full of devil-may-care youthfulness with a Mona Lisa smile hidden in his well-wrought tones. Castro’s 2018 voice truly adds a layer of sophistication in the album, made more palpable with the defiant attitude of the Del Mundo brothers that comes through loud and clear in drums and bass. Guitar solos roam free, and rhythms are precise and expertly rendered.

Fans will be glad Orange & Lemons put in the massive effort to re-record these well-loved songs, because the result is an absolute joy to listen to. You can now stream the full album on Spotify!

To promote the record, Orange & Lemons will hold a grand launch via an artist-curated mini-fair on August 4 at Century City Mall in Makati, which they will call “Moonlane Festival.” The band will then embark on a nationwide tour entitled “The LOVE Tour,” covering major cities all over the country with stops in Singapore and Australia. Please regularly check the Orange & Lemons website and social media channels for concert dates.
