DESPISTADO’S THE EMERGENCY RESPONSE (JT1096) is now available. After bouncing relentlessly from club to club, harnessing their sweltering live show, the boys finally settled into the studio and came out with six tracks that are as spastic as they are potent – as much a mix of Wire’s artful passion as Modest Mouse’s steadfast quirk. Angular, driving, and thoroughly commanding DESPISTADO are just out the gate and already hold court as the next Canadian band to watch out for.
In other Prairie news, DESPISTADO are fresh off a full Canadian tour, where they dropped all the hits from THE EMERGENCY RESPONSE while debuting new tracks from their recently recorded full length, now slated for a fall release. A full US tour is in the works, but in the meantime check out some links to what the press has been saying.
