Published Oct 06, 2008As El Guincho gets set to lead his North American fall tour, the tropicália-loving Spaniard is hooking up with his old friends Coconot.
Via BCore, the El Guincho-enhanced trio will release Cosa Astral, which, little did we know, will mark the groups second album. Coconots debut, Novo Tropicalismo Errado, apparently came out back in 2005, a few years before the explosion that was El Guinchos wildly applauded Alegranza!.
According to the press release, with Coconots new album we can expect "twisting pop music schemes beyond the limits of the tropicalism, psychodelia or space [with] guitars sounding like keyboards, keyboards sounding as bizarre horns and woodwinds and avoiding too common beats, which sounds like the thing youd expect from a band involving El Guincho.
Cosa Astral will drop on BCore on November 10 and will be available to order on the labels website starting October 15. Also, El Guinchos Alegranza! will finally be getting a proper North American release on October 21 courtesy of XL Recordings/Young Turks (apparently its been pushed back a few weeks from the original October 7 date).
Here is the tracklisting for Coconots Cosa Astral, followed by El Guinchos upcoming North American tour dates:

3. "Verbena de los Delfines
4. "Si Apuntas y No Matas Todo
