Source: Deli Magazine NY

Helado Negro may be a familiar name in the scene, but its mastermind, Roberto Carlos Lange’s library of work never ceases to surprise.

Prior albums featured weirder ideas and longer jazzy tangents. But while Mean Love may be leaner, it manages to be as creative and exploratory as Sinkane’s previous albums, he’s just refined his sound into a sleeker package.

On stage, however, Sinkane doesn’t hold back, indulging songs from Mean Love with extended jams, letting the funky grooves repeat over and over for a mesmerizing effect. Sinkane’s show last night at Johnny ...
