    Chances are you've heard Kinky's "Mas" in previews for NBC's SOPRANOS knockoff KINGPIN. The guns, sweat, violence, and dangerous sex of the commercial are an ideal setting for the Mexican band's hot, danceably exotic sound, which blends electronica and rock with Latin rhythms and ethereal vocals in a compelling, percolating mix.
    Campy (consider the Dirk Diggler disco of "Mirando De Lando"), yet with an undeniably tough center, Kinky expertly navigates the shoals of its first full-length effort as if it had spent every day of the past decade in the studio. The percussive batucada onslaught of "Sol" will have even the most diehard wallflowers strutting their stuff, and if some of the rhythms of "Ejercicio" sound a trifle recycled, just consider it a breathing space before the next take-no-prisoners rush of Central American funk. "Cornman" blends chiming Monterey accordion with tough New York Avenue C R&B in an irresistible amalgam that segues into the equally seductive, timbale-laced "Anorexic Freaks," a stylish, almost throwaway cut so simultaneously funky yet post-modern you'll wonder if these guys aren't Japanese or something.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (4/11/02, p.132) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Space music for the Spanglish Age....as feverishly danceable as a night in Ibiza."
    Uncut (1/03, p.119) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...The quartet mix funk, house, rock-en-Espanol, salsa, hip hop and mariachi into an anarchic musical fusion....The lyrics are fascinating, too..."
    CMJ (4/29/02, p.5) - "...Five muy guapo guys who make groovy electro-pop music for dance enthusiasts, cumbia fans and rock romantics alike..."
