el guincho to release 12 inch covers ep series

El Guincho (nee Pablo Das-Reixa), who first rose to prominence with his glee-inducing, poly-rhythmic, tropicalia-flavored debut Alegranza back in '07, is set to release a series of 12" EPs leading up to the fall release of his second album Pop Negro.

Each EP will consist of five tracks, each a cover of a traditional South American song. The first of these, Piratas de Sudamerica, drops on July 13 in the states and a week later in the UK. In interviews, Das-Reixa has expressed a desire to move away from the sample-based sound of his previous record so expect to hear some more live instrumentation on the new tracks (though the tropicalia influence will probably stick).

The EP should be up streaming here: Piratas de Sudamerica. -ben krusling
