Mik Current is the nom de tune of Michelangelo Corrente, a native of Venezuela and a drummer by musical trade. Current came to the U.S. in 2009 and lived in Miami and Boston before alighting in the U.S. and launching his new project early this year. The debut Mik Current EP features some enticing grooves in his blend of Latin music (particularly merengue and salsa) and American rock. It’s a little bit sweaty, a little bit sexy, a little bit brooding; “Lies,” with its soulful backing vocals, recalls 1970s classic rock. With the horns and other orchestration on the EP, it’s made for a promising start.
