  • Summary: Kinky is a five-piece band from Monterrey, Mexico that combines rock, electronica, and traditional Latin music. This debut album was produced by Chris Allison (Coldplay, Beta Band).

  1. Positive: 8 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. Brilliantly combining Spanish dialogue and hauntingly serene vocals with conga, timbales, accordion, cheesy organ, and funky guitar, Kinky intertwines it all with coiling bass, mad samples, and sexy synthetic grooves.
  2. 80
    With a thick strain of the DJ humor found in the music of De La Soul and Daft Punk, Kinky know no borders, slapping Mexican norteno with techno until it sounds like neither. [Apr/May 2002, p.114]
  3. All in all, a really great debut for this quintet.
  4. 70
    The album is witty and fun and will appeal to a wide variety of people. [Apr 2002, p.82]
  5. Despite the band's electronic trappings, Kinky has a visceral, funky feel to it.
  6. Consistent and cleanly sexy stuff.
  7. 60
    Updates the happy-fi Plastilina Mosh sound into a pop-friendly mix of hip-hop, funk and lounge-y atmospheres. [May 2002, p.116]
