✨✧ LiminanasCrystal Anis ... LP
HoZac, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Noirish French rock from The Liminanas – the second great record in a row from multi-instrumentalist Lionel and sultry singer/drummer Marie! Crystal Anis is their first album for Hozac – and one that equals, if not tops their underground instant classic debut for Trouble In Mind. Honestly, no other neo-classic garage psych revivalists anywhere in the world hits our sweet spot like The Liminanas. They carry a darkness-tinged, fuzzy guitar vibe inspired by early Velvets, the sometimes spoken, sometimes sung sexiness of Serge Gainsbourg and his chanteuses on the vocal tip, and an overall narcotic vibe that sinks in and doesn't let up. Yes, the influences are familiar, but what they do with them is uniquely hypnotic and wholly distinctive. The songs jump back and forth from French to English, but it's really all about the mood here. We can't recommend 'em highly enough! Titles Include "Salvation", "Longanisse", "AF3458", "Kinam", "Hospital Boogie", "Bad Lady Goes To Jail", "Crystal Anis", "Belmondo", "Betty And Johnny", "Une Ballade Pour Clive" and the closing instrumental "I'm Dead".

✨✧ LiminanasMalamore ... LP
HoZac, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Liminanas are looking hipper than ever on the cover of this album – and sounding hipper than ever too – really opening up that amazing sound that's made them one of our favorite French acts of the past decade or so! All the fuzz of previous records is still in place, but the vocals also seem to be a bit more upfront in the mix – not polished or commercial, but given this placement that really makes the whole thing sound even moodier and darker than before! There's a strong current between their music and classic modes from folks like Serge Gainsbourg and Jacques Dutronc – but the sound is definitely all their own. The set features guest appearances by Pascal Comelade and Peter Hook – and titles include "Dahlia Rouge", "Paradise Now", "The Train Creep A Loopin", "Zippo", "Garden Of Love", "El Sordo", "Prisunic", and "Athen IA".
