When you can’t resist new sonic vibrations, play them on…
(artwork new album)
Mind-expanding French duo THE LIMIÑANAS just released their new longplayer – and to my hungry ears, without a shadow of a doubt, their best so far – SHADOW PEOPLE. No fillers, all killers. All their well-known sonic key strengths meet in harmony just brilliantly on this new LP with Marie‘s irresistible, repetitive, tribal kicks and Lionel‘s sensual guitar grooves as the non-stop throbbing heartbeat from the very ouverture to the melancholic finish. The mesmeric collaborations are spot on as usual (with New Order/Joy Division bass legend Peter Hook, psychedelia junkie Anton Newcombe / French singer/author Bertrand Belin and French actress/musician Emmanuelle Seigner) and fit the whole story perfectly.
The overall hypnotic and gloomy swagger transfer you to the cinematic glamour and twilight glitter of a film noir. Spellbinding jams infiltrate all pitch-black corners of the
dark side of your satisfied mind. This is the first truly striking record of the new year.
Dim the lights, relax, have yourself a drink, alert all of your senses and experience an avalanche of sensory trips on repeat, like me…
And to satisfy your greedy eyes too here are two visualized tracks off the album…
* SHADOW PEOPLE (title track feat. the wonderful Emmanuelle Seigner)
* ISTANBUL IS SLEEPY (featuring The Brian Jonestown Massacre‘s mastermind)
