Sebastian Litmanovich a.k.a. Cineplexx
Cineplexx is Sebastian Litmanovich. He is a graphic artist and musician based out of Barcelona by way of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since 1997, Litmanovitch has been releasing records via Caipirinha, an NYC experimental electronic label. He’s played shows in Argentina, Europe, U.S., Spain, and Japan as his Cineplexx moniker or as his audio-visual side project, Cacahuetes Inc. In 2006, Federico Aubele asked Litmanovich to join his touring band. In 2008, Cineplexx’s released Picnic, a melodic, pop album framed on acoustic-electronic compositions that boasts collaborations with Jaid Fair (Half Japanese), Federico Aubele, Natalia Clavier, and Duglas T. Stewart of BMX Bandits and Teenage Fanclub‘s Norman Blake. Litmanovitch cites the Velvet Underground and ABBA as his biggest influences, but tunes like the ultra-catchy “A Mi Lado” flows on a sunny Beach Boys/Jens Lekman vibe. In May Cineplexx released a compilation record of old, new, and rare tunes called Nuevahola (Cherry Red Records).
As an added Monday bonus, Mí Casa is throwing a wonderful cover of Depeche Mode’s “I Feel You” from an Argentine tribute album Enjoy The Silence via Discos Sordos.
