It's been five long years since the Monterrey, Mexico natives, KINKY  released an album of new material, 2012’s Sueño de la Maquina. Now the band has made its long-awaited return with a new album, Nada Vale Más Que Tú, which was released in July, and with a tour by the same name.

The new album sounds like ’90s-era KINKY, with infectious synth-driven and danceable tracks, but with a twist. Band members Gilberto Cerezo, Ulises Lozano, Carlos Chairez, Omar Góngora, and Cesar Pliego collaborated with a diverse range of musicians, including Mexican-American singer-songwriter Pepe Aguilar and Adrián Dárgelos, lead singer of Chilean band Babasónicos. The album also has a good dose of female vocals thanks to Dominican artist Jarina De Marco and Chilean urban singer Mariel Mariel.



Even if you don’t speak Spanish, KINKY's experimental sounds will make you want to dance, and even learn the language. Who knows, the band might even throw in some old-school tracks in English from their Barracuada album — give “Those Girls,” and "The Day I Lost the Beat” a listen. Don’t miss KINKY’s show in Berkeley, the band's first East Bay show in years. We’ll be there, and you should, too!

Wednesday, Oct. 11, 8pm, $34, all ages, Cornerstone, 2367 Shattuck Ave. Berkeley, CornerstoneBerkeley.com
