El Guincho's forthcoming EP is called Piratas de Sudamérica, literalized in this video: dude's rowing a pintsize, hook-handed pirate around a lake for no reason other than to potentially terrorize us with cuteness? The song fits its weird vision, with a psychedelic tropical sway that starts to sound insane after four minutes, like a forced vacation to David Lynch's take on Disneyland or getting lost in the house of mirrors after the carnival closes. Creepily relaxing! If you're in NYC next week, check El Guincho at Latin Alternative Music Conference, and enter here to win a badge.
