Kinky
Atlas
(Nettwerk)
If half the songs weren’t in Spanish and there wasn’t an extra Latin pizzazz in the rhythms, Kinky would still rock out. LA engineer Thom Russo enables the band to inject a harder, bassier drive into its second album. “The Headphon-ist” separates and lifts each son- ic element while pondering the shape of silence. Magic realism visits “Maria José,” as the tequila worm he eats while drowning his love sorrows emerges as a butterfly flying out his ass in the morning, albeit in Español. Kinky’s evolution is nearly as sublime.
