Today KCRW debuted Kinky’s new song and video “Despues Del After” from their much-anticipated album “Sueño De La Maquina” is in stores and on iTunes NOW!
Filmed in Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong, watch Kinky’s “Despues Del After” below:
The album was produced and mixed by legendary Dust Brother John King, who also worked with the likes of Beck, The Rolling Stones and Beastie Boys.
Known for their electrifying live show, these 5 boys from Monterrey are going to keep you moving. Their collaborations with La Mala Rodriguez, Dante Spinetta y Mister Chivo add just the right touch of hip-hop, making this album already a critics and fan favorite for 2012.
To celebrate the album release, Kinky recently headlined a major show at NYC’s Central Park SummerStage during the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC), which was reviewed by Jon Pareles of the New York Times:
“Kinky’s songs ride funk and rock riffs that hark back to the dance-rock of the early 1980s, with a rough edge on keyboards and guitar — but punctuated, every so often, by accordion lines out of Mexican border music. Meanwhile its lyrics fling images of consumerism as brainwashing and distraction, and of partying toward self-destruction, none of which stopped fans from dancing.” (NY Times 7/16/12)
Check them out live this summer as they will be hitting the Gaia Festival in Laytonville, CA on August 3 and in Los Angeles on August 10th at KSSE 107.1 FM SuperEstrella‘s soldout Reventon concert at The Staples Center along with Cafe Tacuba, Julieta Venegas and more.
