After a recent diversion with the Piratas de Sudamerica EP El Guincho prepares to follow up his debut Alegranza with Pop Negro, releasing on September 14th but available now as a live stream.

El Guincho’s first album Alegranza identified him as one to watch, marrying upbeat indie pop music, in the vein of Animal Collective or Air France, with a whole world of influences including tropicália, afro beat and salsa. He continued that rich vein of form with the recent Piratas de Sudamerica EP, in which he covered some of his favourite latin classics in an indie style that he hoped would get more people interested in these artists that he grew up listening to.


Pop Negro will attempt to continue the great publicity he received for his first album. It was deemed “Best New Music” by Pitchfork upon release, obviously quite a high accolade for an artists released on the small Young Turks label, and especially for an artists singing in Spanish. Thankfully you can get an idea of what the album will sound like before buying due to this live stream, provided by Remezcla Musica.
