Coconot, 'Cosa Astral' (Bcore)

6
Cosa Astral
Critical Mass
Label: Bcore

by Spencer Kornhaber

When he records solo as El Guincho, Pablo Díaz-Reixa sometimes gets pegged (a bit unfairly) as the Spanish Panda Bear. So it's not surprising that his other band could be called (a bit unfairly) the Spanish Animal Collective. On these Barcelona rockers' second album, they whoop and yelp, devouring genres from metal to calypso, lurching between tempos, and cunningly folding electronic textures into analog arrangements. But these aren't Campfire Songs: Coconot's brand of lo-fi merrymaking lives somewhere between the garage and the carnival.
