Their European tour started yesterday, but I couldn't justify blatant promotion of a killer band over posting a mix tape every Friday. Austin's DESKONOCIDOS play the absolute best combination of '80s Spanish punk, dark post punk, and some infectious brand of melodic proto hardcore. Basically, you will pound your fist into the air and dance your ass off and scream along at the top of your lungs singing some total gibberish because your ass probably doesn't speak Spanish. These songs are culled from their EPs on Todo Destruido and Lengua Armada, the split with SACRED SHOCK and two unreleleased bangers that close out the tape. Songs like "Desaparecer" and "Juventud Perida" are instant classics, while there are moments ("Pesadillas" specifically) that remind me of more mainstream pseudo post punk bands, but delivered with a raw fury that the radio hitmakers could never replicate. Get into the songs, and go see them live.
