by The Limes

Groovy, off-kilter pop tunes punctuated with occasional instrumental tracks. Lo-fi lounge-tronica inspired by foreign film directors, sunny 60's pop, 70's porn music, and the great musical couples of yesteryear.

Album Notes

Jeff Sparks and Assia Mortensen, aka The Limes, draw inspiration from a variety of sources: Foreign cinema (Almodovar Film,) 70’s porn music (In You, Strolling,) and sunny 60’s style pop (Feel Right, Satellite Samba.)

Limetime, The Limes’ first full-length album, introduces listeners to a ‘New Lounge’ genre of pop. Mortensen supplied the bulk of the lyrics while Sparks saw to the musical arrangements, in a writing partnership reminiscent of Exene Cervenka and John Doe from the L.A. band X.

Musically, the Limes have been compared to early Pizzicato Five, Nico, Wings (who’s song “Blackbird” receives a cover treatment,) and Joao and Astrud Gilberto. The album’s instrumental tracks vary in length and mood, providing a kind of cohesion to what would otherwise be a wildly eclectic collection of songs.

The result is a party record, a lovers' record, a headphones record—-virtually anytime is the right time for Limetime.
