by El Guincho
Released: Sep 2010
Label: Young Turks
Born in the Canary Islands, based in Barcelona and feted from Brooklyn to Coachella, El Guincho sounds more international than ever on Pop Negro, his sophomore album. Better yet, make that outernational: along with the touches of African, Caribbean and Latin music, Beach Boys harmonies, drum machines and synths, the record hums with an unmistakably psychedelic frequency, as subtle electronic processing turns his fourth-world pop towards the digital ether and beyond. For an album called Black Pop, it's bursting with color.
