If you didn’t know any better you might think that Trouble in Mind dug up a long lost 60’s record from some dusty Parisian attic. the Limiñanas debut album is Jacques Dutronc, Velvet Underground and Françoise Hardy rolled up into a single slab of wax. You literally throw this record on and you feel like you’re doin’ the time warp en français. It conjures such an authentic 60’s vibe that I bet they have bands lining up to record with them to get that sound. After two top notch singles earlier this year, one on TIM and the other on Hozac I was really looking forward to this record, but a little afraid I would be disappointed from heightened expectations. No such problem, expectations met and exceeded.

The Limiñanas debut is due very soon from Trouble In Mind on both LP and CD formats. If you’re into this kind of thing, be sure to check out Les Bellas which the Limiñanas were part of and whose album just saw the light of day earlier this year.
