Canadian prairie-rockers, DESPISTADO are as much a mix of Wire’s artful passion as perhaps Modest Mouses’ steadfast quirk and with the release of The Emergency Response (JT1096) they make their spastic and raging debut worldwide. Angular, driving, and thoroughly commanding DESPISTADO are just out the gate and already hold court as the band to watch out for.
