Our friends at Funeral Pudding recently put up a rad post detailing Barcelona's thriving, vibrant music scene (and more specifically, the adventurous DC/Luv Luv label). The highlight for me was this colorful, swirling new tropical pop jam from El Guincho's other project, Coconot, taken from the band's forthcoming record, Cosa Astral (due in November). Okay, I'll concede that this sounds vaguely similar to some of the newer Animal Collective material, but in this case that's a good thing:

mp3:
coconot :: conservad el rayo

elsewhere:

Secretly Canadian and Bodies of Water are giving away a couple more songs from the band's stellar LP, A Certain Feeling. If you haven't yet checked out the record, then this is as good a place as any to start:

mp3:
bodies of water :: water here
bodies of water :: gold, tan, peach, and gray
