Introducing: Smellkin Ernesto
Minneapolis musician Smellkin Ernesto recently crossed my radar via the good folks at Radio K’s Off The Record. Ernesto’s sound immediately stands out as unique in the local scene. He performs a kind of a lo-fi chilled out funk rock that mixes Spanish and English lyricism. Imagine Mac DeMarco if he had been born in Colombia and raised in Minnesota (which in a total coincidence is Ernesto’s backstory).
