Following the classic swinging tradition of Serge Gainsbourg and the ye-ye sound of the '60s, THE LIMIÑANAS have a sound that blends sunny psychedelia with vintage pop and garage rock infused psych. Hailing from Perpignan, a French Mediterranean port close to the Spanish border, the pair played in various punk acts before opening their record shop, Vinyl Maniac. Their next collaboration, THE LIMIÑANAS, took on a more serious focus after the family were caught up in the 2010 Haitian earthquake while visiting the country to adopt their son.
The group is made of drummer and sometimes vocalist Marie Limiñana and bassist, organist, and jack-of-all-trades Lionel Limiñana, as well as a host of guest vocalists including MU.
With its combination of fuzzy organ, half-spoken/half-sung vocals, and vintage production, the band captures the sexy, ultra-hip sound of classic French pop.
Today's tune "My Black Sabbath" is taken from "Costa Blanca", released 2013, enjoy!
