Texas Music magazine calls Mingo Fishtrap “the space where melodic pop meets gritty Memphis soul, with a twist of N’awlins funk.” Like kudzu vine crisscrossing the Mississippi Delta, Mingo’s tenacious sound infiltrates the musical landscape on a sanctified mission to shake your soul. The critically acclaimed collective has found its sweet spot. Now four albums deep, Mingo has honed its sound, rubbed shoulders with musical idols, and delivered powerhouse live shows to thousands across the globe since the band’s inception in a tiny dorm room in Denton. Mingo’s fourth full-length record, the aptly-named On Time, blends punchy horns and gritty grooves with greasy funk to create sounds steeped in both modern pop and sixties soul sensibilities that transcend both era and genre.
