Presenting gorila contra bear, an awesome new 30+ minute mixtape put together by Barcelona's El Guincho, featuring an eclectic selection of obscure songs from all over the world. And since this is, like, an actual mixtape, we have 10 cassette copies to give away thanks to imeem, each with custom cover art hand-designed by the Guincho himself. To enter, just embed the following imeem player anywhere online (myspace, blog, whatever), and send an email to imeemcontests@gmail.com with a link to your page. The winners will also receive a pair of tix to a date of your choice on El Guincho's upcoming North American tour, and a limited Palmitos Park 7".

Here's a downloadable mp3 of the full gorila contra bear mixtape, plus a brand new unreleased El Guincho song that'll appear on a limited Alegranza bonus disc in the UK:
