Mike Montoya, of Fatigo fame, released a six-track EP last summer and we’ve revisited it countless times over the months that followed. From the very start of Montoya’s KIND, there is a distinctive southwestern vibe from its Latin sound infusion to its dusty storytelling style. In a mere six tracks, Montoya manages to leave a deep and lasting impression. If you haven’t spent any time with KIND yet, I suggest you do yourself the favor and give it a spin. Right now. You can listen here. As an added bonus, two of the tracks feature the late Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl.
