Two tracks that I'll play on the radio show this week, that I want to share with you a bit before.
Download Coconot - El Final Del Sonido Tropical
Coming out of Barcelona, Coconot is a band/project that Pablo Díaz-Reixa, also known as El Guincho, was doing before fully getting into his solo effort. Coconot's album is overall less experimental or electronic than Alegranza and might be closer to the sound of their first EP than Guincho's sampling project. That song is outstanding on the album by it's happy melodic pop lines and it's emphasis on drums and repetitive verse. It has the same vibe as the single but it's more interesting in my opinion. Go check out their myspace to listen a good half of their album called Cosa Astral to be released very soon in stores and that you can already get through Bcore's website.
Next is recommendation by my friend Sean Michaels of Said the Gramophone, fellow Montrealer, teacher in jokes, master of bright remarks, and soon to come to the radio show to give us a little selection. When I told him about the awesomeness of Buraka Som Sistema's Black Diamond, he replied by a mysterious name: Jib Kidder. You got to listen to that gamelan crunk he said. Of course I was intrigued! Well there it is! Gamelan crunk! Go read Sean's story on living computers or go get blown away by Jib's myspace page karate chop.
