2013 release from this band led by Lio and Marie Limi¤ana. Once again recorded at their home in the south of France by Lio himself, Costa Blanca pushes the envelope of their signature Franc-o-phonic sound; the colour cafe cool of Gainsbourg, the hypnotic drone of VU-era Cale, and the spiky fuzz of Davie Allan. This time around the band laces the tunes with a dramatic flair of French New Wave soundtracks and the percussive sonic accents found in Morricone’s work in Il Gruppo, for its Funk-laced tracks incorporated with elements of avant-classical and experimental sonic elements.
