iZCALLi makes the kind of music you leave home to: melancholy folk phrases lashed to driving beats that pin the pedal to the floor — that Molotov of nostalgia and exhilaration, the immigrant song. It’s a feeling iZCALLi — named for the Mexican birthplace of member-siblings Miguel (lead guitar/vocals) and Brenda Avina (bass) and the Nahuatl word for rebirth — knows well. Born on both sides of the border (drummer Luiggy Ramirez hails from Colorado) and formed in the Denver over ten years ago, iZCALLi has, over the course of three LPs and a thousand shows, swigged its evolving sound from both wells of tradition, from Latin-tinged echoes to punching metal to filthy blues, in English and in Español. The result is a loyal flock of fans of every color, from every background, rich or poor. The result is RETI=Rock En Tu Idioma, a community for making rock in Spanish, the music of the melting pot, which is deeply American and knows no frontiers. This is iZCALLi’s appeal: the kind of music that makes you leave home and return, exhilarating live shows that celebrate tradition and kin, that unite what you find with what you left behind, and open the heart, so you know you are home.

The Kinky Fingers have massaged their musical palate over the past few years by playing almost constantly. In three years the band tripped to the west coast (with pitstops in TJ Mexico) five times. They toured the southern "Bible Belt", Texas, and had a summer vacation in New York. In their hometown of Denver they've shared the floorboards with The Growlers, Allah Las, Banditos, Guantanamo Baywatch, Mystic Braves, The Shivas, Mark Sultan, Chicano Batman, and a handful of other modern day musical conquistadors.

Their latest release WORST OF is a compilation EP's past and present. It's the worst.

"The Kinky Fingers have all the grit of Santah and all the smoothness of Vacationer. The Denver three piece layers falsetto harmonies over reverb kissed guitar lines and punchy drums to create a sound that takes equally from heavy psych and saccharine pop. The Kinky Fingers straddle the line between aesthetics as well as any band might–skating down a meandering jam while crafting hook after hook. If you’re looking for a band that will give you the same feeling The Beatles gave the straight world when they returned from India, look no further than The Kinky Fingers."
