Stream: Cineplexx – “Crawl o Mariposa”

Cineplexx – Crawl o Mariposa

Cineplexx – Cosas de la Vida Normal

Some may recall Cineplexx, and frontman Sebastian Litmanovich, from a feature in 2008 — and how places like NYC and Buenos Aires inspired his lushly nostalgic material. With a focus on guitars and synth-infused pop, his sound is a blend of psych-pop, culturally eclectic folk, and post-rock; it’s not too distant from the engrossing DIY pop of R. Stevie Moore or Ariel Pink. ”Cosas de la Vida Normal”, the first track on Cineplexx’s upcoming album Perfume, is a bouncy organ-led gem with a head-nodding lead. Driven by the organ’s playfulness, it resembles traditional dance-pop of the ’60s, like polka on psychedelics. Litmanovich clearly enjoys the use of retro images and nostalgic fashion, evidenced by the just-released teaser for “Cosas de la Vida Normal”, and the video for the tropically lush “Crawl o Mariposa”, a mellow piece of paradise also on the upcoming Perfume.
