El Guincho – Fata Morgana

And you thought Dan Deacon was where it was at for exhilaratingly odd electronic sorts. Time to revise that notion I’m afraid. I don’t what this is. I don’t know how to classify it. Is it being wilfully obscure or is there a perfectly formed pop song in there somewhere? Could it be a nursery rhyme or the perfect soundtrack to a slasher movie? Pablo Díaz-Reixa is from the Canary Islands and makes this wondrous noise so probably only he can answer these questions (he and those aliens in Close Encounters). Oh right, pop/tropical/club, should have guessed, it makes complete sense now. Right I’m off to buy a set of cheap steel drums, they are all the rage you know. KD
