Earlier, the good people at The Fork published a just plain fantastic live set by Spain’s El Guincho, a band whose debut Alegranza earned entry #8 on my coveted Top Albums of 2008 List.

I’ve been soaking up its warm, summery-rays all day long.

If you’re unfamiliar, El Guincho is the stage name of Pablo Díaz-Reixa, a talented Spaniard who fuses tropical vibes, spirited tribal chants, and jungle beats with gloriously irresistible pop. In other words, the ideal score for today’s unexpected winter reprieve.

“Palmitos Park” and “Kalise” are performed in the video below. I hope you like them as much as I do.


BC punk-rockers Nomeansno are at The Albert on April 13th.

Midnight Dawns are holding their CD release party at The Pyramid on February 27th.

Infinite Playlist: El Guincho - Alegranza!
