#211: Chico da Tina, “Minho Trapstar”

Hailing from Viana do Castelo, Portugal, Francisco da Concertina – or Chico da Tina – is the only trap star we know that plays concertina, would rather have a 18th century neoclassical painting on his neck instead of golden chains, buys his wares from local markets instead of “flea markets” or vintage shops, and whose notion of a good time is more likely to be a small village romaria instead of a club in the city. You won’t get it if you don’t know the language, but it’s your fault anyway. Plus: new tracks by Destroyer, Girl Ray, Jaakko Eino Kalevi, Lalalar, Health&Beauty, Black Bombaim & João Pais Filipe, Clark, Maria Reis, Josienne Clarke, Basia Bulat, Frances Quinlan, Hoops, Tōth, Califone, SUSS, Twain, Futurebirds, Tuomo & Markus, Drive-By Truckers, Honey Harper, and Leonard Cohen.
