French psych-pop duo The Limiñanas return to Trouble In Mind for an LP with their long-time friend & collaborator, noted avant-garde composer Pascal Comelade entitled “The Nothing Twist”. A sly nod to Lionel Limiñana’s love of European soundtracks & sound library records, “The Nothing Twist” is a (mostly) instrumental collection of tunes to make you move & sway.

Those already familiar with The Limiñanas brand of ‘pop-française’-inflected psychedelic garage pop will find much to like here. Many of the band’s already patented sounds are the bedrock of many of the tunes on “The Nothing Twist”, but the addition of frequent live collaborator Pascal Comelade in the studio augments Lio’s already stellar arrangements, & Comelade’s frequent use of toy instruments & cheap noisemakers injects the album with unexpected melodic twists & charming whimsy. Many tunes (like fuzz-faced stompers “Stella Star” & “El vici birra-crucis”) feel like a refined continuation of territory mined on their last album “Costa Blanca”, but others like the Rota/Morricone-esque “They call me Black Sabata” & the fragile piano ballad “Yesterday Man” are drenched in a sincerely affecting melancholy. “T.B. Jerk+++” is the standout here, an urgent dance number with one Lio’s most savage fuzz guitar solos - try not to move to it!

RIYL: Serge Gainsbourg, Dungen, Stereolab, Il Gruppo, Jacco Gardner, Ennio Morricone
