Lemuria is a Buffalo, NY based trio. Their third album, The Distance is So Big, produced by Jawbox's J. Robbins, has been described as "... hooks, discordance, sweet pop, riffs and off-kilter moments that all combine to make a record that currently sits in my top five albums of the year." A CMJ review called them "...sugary sweet, but also occasionally literary and a little intensethey pack a honeyed punch with each thoughtfully intonated verse."
