The Limiñanas – New Album ‘Electrified’ (Best of 2009-2022) out 26 August

Fresh from the triumphant release of ‘De Pelicula‘, their collaborative album with legendary French DJ and producer Laurent Garnier, and a sold-out show at London’s Scala, The Limiñanas have announced their first-ever best-of album, covering the span of their 13-year career. The quintessentially French psychedelic duo will release ‘Electrified’ (Best of 2009-2022) on 26th August via Because Music.
The first extract from the album is brand new track ‘La Musique‘, featuring their trademark pulsating beat as the backdrop for a spoken word anthem reminiscent of Serge Gainsbourg. For the song, they are joined by multi-instrumentalist and Brigitte Fontaine‘s longtime producer Areski Belkacem.
Since 2009, the garage-psychedelic French duo The Limiñanas has been straddling the boundaries between psychedelia, shoegaze, garage & French yé-yé. In this time, they have released 7 critically-acclaimed studio albums, 2 rare-tracks compilations, many EPs, a number of original soundtracks and various collaborations, including 2019’s ‘Diabolique’ by L’Epee, a collaboration with The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcombe and Emmanuelle Seigner.
More than a traditional best-of, ‘Electrified’ includes 12 exclusive bonus tracks, a mixture of new songs and rare songs written under their previous moniker Les Bellas. It also includes 23 of their classic songs, featuring the likes of Peter HookAnton Newcombe and French pioneers Laurent GarnierEtienne Daho and Pascal Comelade. The album will also feature liner notes written by Iggy PopPeter Hook and Keith Streng (The Fleshtones). ‘Electrified’ will be released on double CD, double vinyl, limited-edition triple orange vinyl and digital.
