Algodón Egipcio releases debut album La Lucha Constante08 April, 2011
Venezuela’s Algodón Egipcio, aka Cheky from the great Jovenes y Sexys, released his debut album La Lucha Constante on March 22nd. The album is a dense work which will draw comparisons to Crystal Stilts, El Guincho, Panda Bear and the many artists who preceded those bands. We will shortly have a review of the album, but first, we just wanted to tell you about it’s release!
