Limnetic Villains – ‘Shut The Door (An Unintelligible Yarn)’

Limnetic Villains, the musical guise of Kildare based musician Vincent Lillis, is probably the most prolific artist I’ve encountered in some time (seriously, this guy turns out a huge amount of quality music at a mere whim, nor does he doesn’t sacrifice quantity for quality either).

In keeping with his fecund tendencies he has kindly produced a special one off track for the readers of BarryGruff with Record Store Day tomorrow. ‘Shut The Door (An Unintelligible Yarn)’ sees him continue to embrace his predilection for darkly shady electronics and burning guitars filtered through an eerily murky mix of psychedelic rock and krautrock influences. Similarities with Primal Scream, Death In Vegas or David Holmes are hard to avoid but hardly a bad thing, are they?

Limnetic Villains also released an excellent 20 track free album (yes, 20 track) entitled Depleted earlier in the year, from which there are also two cuts below. You can download Depleted for FREE from here.

Introducing: Limnetic Villains

Operating under this own name, Kildare based musician Vincent Lillis released three albums on now defeunct online record label ‘Rack And Ruin’. Following it’s demise he decided to change things up a bit and started making music under the guise of Limnetic Villains.

Comparisons between his and the music of Primal Scream, Death In Vegas or David Holmes are hard to avoid. He has a predilection for darkly shaded electronics and burning guitars which are filtered through an eerily murky mix of psychedelic rock and krautrock influences. While heavily indebted to the aforementioned artists this is far from imitation, he manages to put his own fresh stamp on this sound. 

Limnetic Villains is currently working on a new album but for now there is plenty sample below or on his SoundCloud.
