El Guincho (ESP) w/ AS AT and Mount Pleasant

Presales: $15 from Real Groovy and HSP (available now).

El Guincho is the moniker of Spanish musician Pablo Díaz-Reixa, whose sample-based, percussive, tropical-beach-pop has been exciting clubs of sweaty revellers and discerning music critics worldwide. Debut album Alegranza! garnered comparisons to Brazilian-psych legends Os Mutantes, Panda Bear, Ariel Pink and New Zealand's own Ruby Suns due to its clever pastiche of "afro-beat percussion, calypso harmonies, psych tropicália, world music samplers, doo wop, trance repetition, underwater pop, steel drums and island feeling plus club oriented song structures, uptempo beats and exotica production" (Mistletone Records).

On his first ever visit to New Zealand El Guincho will be joined by percussionist Aleix Clavera who promises to double the infectious intensity of Diaz-Reixa's exotic party.
