The Mexican five-piece Kinky pack an awful lot into their music: power chords and house beats, accordions and Farfisa organs, even guest vocals from Men at Work’s Colin Hay. Reina leans more toward rock than the band’s previous two releases, but the songs still aim at dance floors. And funny bones. The lyrics brim with nonsense refrains (”Spin that wine in your head”) sing-shouted over cartoonish beeps and thumps. It’s music that straddles borders — between nations, between genres, between inspired silliness and a serious party.
