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.
