""If the Beatles and Bob Marley had kids""

Tonight at 6 on a special Centerstage MN on 91.7 KAXE, we'll spend the full hour with The Limns!

When The Limns performed at the Blue Ox in Bemidji for KBXE's Spread the Love party, I sat down with them before the concert and recorded a conversation about their new album "Move Around Robots".

From Minneapolis, with strong ties to the Bemidji area (Zacc and Zeke of The Limns are younger brothers of Caleb from Bemidji's Uncle Shurley), The Limns are hard to classify..., a high energy rock band with influences of reggae, pop and funk. Or as Javon said during our conversation, "...if The Beatles and Bob Marley had kids".

With a couple EPs under their belt, their first full length album "Move Around Robots," is an excellent piece of work that not only shows a maturity and cohesiveness in the band, but also great ears for writing catchy tunes. It's a fun and insightful conversation - don't miss it!

Also, we recorded the performance! CSMN will start off with selections from The Limns scaled-down acoustic opening set, and after the interview we'll end with highlights from the full band rockin' the night away.

Each week CSMN showcases the talents of MN musicians, and there are a LOT of them. From emerging artists on the Iron Range to the biggest artists out of the Twin Cities, from something new and edgy out of Duluth to the most experimental music ever out of Bemidji, we cover the music scene in MN better than anyone.

Still working on that hot first release.



Early in their career, the Limns became the first band in over 20 years to win the MN State Fair Amateur Talent Contest - which got the ball rolling and made members and fans excited about the bands potential. They played South By Southwest, and 10,000 Lakes Music Festival. They've shared bills with national acts including The Flaming Lips, Matisyahu, and Digital Underground.

With a focus on keeping the audience engaged, smiling, and dancing, The Limns continually work at expanding their sound and pushing the boundaries of their limitations. With two EP's and a full length album under their belt, The Limns are continuing to make new music.
"Fall into Peace", the bands forthcoming second full length album, is currently in the works. A bit of a transformation for the band, the album's theme reflects on existential issues; asking questions, and conjuring meaning. The album is seen as a chance to create something new, rather than to recreate the energy of a live show. The album is a heartfelt testimony to the bands growth as writers, musicians, and individuals.

The art of recording is a task The Limns don't take lightly. They continue to produce their own music and have been making strides with every new release.
