Like disco queen Alicia Bridges, Mexican electronic/rock outfit Kinky sure loves the nightlife; the five-piece band's deliciously spicy eponymous debut full-length confirms this. Thankfully, Kinky's nightlife isn't limited to any one musical genre. Instead, it delights in diversity: a wah-wah guitar lick here, feisty Latin percussion there; Basement Jaxx-inflected Brasilia here, Aterciopelados-hued alt-rock there; house grooves here, hip-hop beats there. Throughout, ultra-photogenic bandmembers Gilberto Cerezo (singer), Ulises Lozano (keyboardist), Carlos Chairez (guitarist), Omar Gongora (drummer), and Cesar Pliego (bassist) play with inner-child enthusiasm. Kinky, produced by the band and Chris Allison (Coldplay, the Beta Band, Plastilina Mosh), is a nonstop party, with potent tracks "San Antonio," "Mirando de Lado," "Sol (Batucada)," "Sambita," and lead single "Cornman" standing out. Feel like getting down, indeed.—MP
