I don't know how to explain my feelings right at this very moment, for I have found out the best news I've heard since...probably ever, and that's saying a lot. El Guincho will be bringing he's fine self down Australia's way in May to promote his debut album 'Alegranza' and taking in the support slot of Architecture In Helsinki's 'Like It Or Not' Tour. This is incredible news, and I really have to hand it to AIH, they always bring some really good acts along for their tours (YACHT, Muscles, Glass Candy, Panther, etc.). Enough praise and applause for AIH (they've had more than enough in the last year), it's El Guincho I'm more focussed on. The music this man creates is stunningly beautiful and intelligent. It's a bit of a shame that Panda Bear came beforehand otherwise El Guincho would be crowned the king of this unique genre. This is music at it's most obscure, and I couldn't be anymore in love with it at the moment. Please, do listen if you have not already.
