DESPISTADO [I]THE EMERGENCY RESPONSE[/I] REVIEW
Canadian prairie-rockers and Jade Tree's most recent signing, Despistado, are as much a mix of WIRE'S artful passion as MODEST MOUSE'S steadfast quirk. With "The Emergency Response," they finally make their spastic and raging debut worldwide. Squelching guitars, yelping hooks, and a stabbing rhythm section unfurl with the subtlety of a steamroller. Angular, driving, and thoroughly commanding, Despistado are just out the gate and ALREADY are the band to watch in 2004.
