Caracas, Venezuela’s Ezequiel “Cheky” Bertho, recording as Algodón Egipcio, released a beautiful video directed by Paste.tv‘s Pablo Ortiz. “El Día Previo” couldn’t look or sound smoother, paired here with crisp, sepia-toned rock-and-water scenes overlaid in thin-lettered words, most in languages we don’t understand. “It’s kind of a multilingual karaoke,” Cheky says. “This way most people can understand at least a line of the song.” Algodón Egipcio’s La Lucha Constante is out now on Lefse.
