Mink Performs “Dejame Salir” on Acústica Sesión

I’ve recently fallen in love with Mexico City-based Rock/Pop/Jazz trio MINK thanks to a friend of mine who gave me a copy of their full-length album Camino.

MINK - Carla Villagran & Alex Sanchez

The trio, consisting of vocalist Carol Villagrán, guitarist Alex Sanchez and drummer bassist Adrian Paz, released an acoustic version of one of their hits, “Dejame Salir,” yesterday for Acústica Sesión, a production of Art En Stock and Tricyclo Music:

MINK formed in Mexico City in early 2007 months after Villagrán and Sanchez won a contest which led to a performance in Tokyo’s Asia Club. They released their debut, self-titled ep in 2009 recorded with the help of producer Tweety González.

MINK released Camino, also produced by González, the following year to positive reviews. It’s a great Pop record with touches of Rock, Jazz and a few dashes of Electronic music. And for those who noticed, yes, Villagrán does have a timbre similar to Ximena Sariñana.

No word yet on MINK’s plans for 2012 but I hope it includes a tour of the U.S.
