"You may not have heard of Argentinean-born Cineplexx (a.k.a. Sebastian Litmanovich), but that doesn’t mean that he hasn’t spent the majority of his 34 years making music. His ninth full-length, Picnic, features simple pop music with little inner complexities (think: The Beach Boys meets Belle and Sebastian). Tracks like “Droga Paliativa” infuse with ’80s style synths and electronic-driven pop, while the title track (which features Half Japanese’s Jad Fair) masterfully layers a folky organ with twitchy guitar and chimes. Like dreamy landscapes sung in Spanish, Litmanovich’s melodies evoke all kinds of emotions" - XLR8

Cineplexx est un poète et chante des choses simples: un pique-nique, un disque de Belle & Sebastian, les heures qui s’écoulent lentement jusqu’à la fin de la semaine. Vamos de picnic, en tren o en coche. Cineplexx va, j’en suis sûr, composer le Porque te vas de notre époque. / J.-E.D. Standard Magazine (France)
