France’s The Limiñanas are coming — MP3 & tour dates

by Bill Pearis

DOWNLOAD: The Limiñanas – Down Underground (MP3)


All the way from Perpignan, France are The Limiñanas‘ who will be touring here later this month with two stops in the NYC area: Wednesday, Aug. 17 at Death by Audio and then Thursday, Aug. 18 at Cake Shop.

The group’s self-titled debut on the fine Trouble in Mind label came in at #4 on my Favorite Francophone Albums on 2010 (I was bored over the holidays) where I described its charms thusly:

Evoking swinging Parisian scene of the mid-’60s (Gainsbourg, Dutronc, Ye-Ye, et al), The Limiñanas dance their way through 12 hits of groovy garage: fuzz leads, killer basslines, combo organ, smoky vocals. Perfect for your next Love-In.

You can check out the track “Down Underground” from the album at the top of this post. Along for the ride on this tour, also from Perpignan, are Gaz Gaz which is a new band from Nico of Sonic Chicken 4.
