Take a look at the cover of Lemonade's third album, Minus Tide; that bluest of blue water, you can feel it lap at your ankles almost immediately. The next thought is where that water is located: poolside or tiding on to a beach, it's somewhere warm and where your mind heads next is the warmth of the sun on your back, on your head, on your face. Then come the memories of that never-to-be-forgotten Balearic summer... long nights, lazy post-comedown days, fleeting romances which, preserved in amber, are probably more cherished than they should be. But the cover, plus the music of the electro-pop three piece, is the point where that water meets the flaming orange of the evening skyline, a seamless marriage of sonics and visuals.

That's maybe a long-winded intro, but the tropical dance music made by Lemonade and some other acts found on Cascine is deserving of such a write-up. The NYC-via-San Fran trio of Callan Clendenin, Ben Steidel and Alex Pasternak has crafted a foot-in-both camps sound of dancefloor bangers and morning-after chill through their self-titled debut and 2012's marvellous Diver album but here, on album number three there's no jarring between the styles - it's a record which merges emotions and energies like the best twenty-four hours of holiday time you've ever had.

The videogame effects splurge of 'Stepping' are a terrific introduction to Minus Tide; once the 8-bit noises subside we're left with a pulse beat and washes of euphoric synths over which Clendenin sings in his soft-yet-urgent voice "It tastes like acid when you're my lover / Lifts me up and then it pulls me under" - it's the sort of idiot savant lyrics that Bernard Sumner was famous for and you can hear echoes of him in Clendenin's delivery. That huge dance track is followed by the rather laid back 'Durutti Shores', which floats by on tropical rhythms and pipes that aren't far removed from Korallreven's best moments. It's blissful, but that mood doesn't remain very long when 'Clearest' bursts in on an insistent beat and a soaring vocal that shows Clendenin can hit the high notes with consummate ease.

Although the pulsating moments on Minus Tide are very welcome, the best moments come with the songs that creep over you, like a shaft of sunshine making its way across your darkened room through a crack in the blinds, slowly warming your body as you lie there thinking of the wonders of the previous night; 'Water Coloured Visions' is one such moment, enhanced by slo-mo guitar and gorgeous drum patterns, the Balearic synth stabs of 'Reaches' pierce your heart with their precise melodic stabs and the closing title track builds from shimmering Pacific island keys and pitch-bent vocals to an otherworldly pop song that might well be Lemonade's finest moment to date.

Minus Tide is a record that lets you recall the best moments from vacations both real and imagined in a way that's better and brighter than the original experience. Lemonade will enhance your life in so many ways with this blissful and beatific trip.
