One of the best bands in the world, with headman conor oberst, the singer of bright eyes. Desaparecidos uses more guitars and is faster/louder than bright eyes. The songs aren't about emotions, like in bright eyes, but more about political rants. Desaparecidos takes a spin on faux patriotism, and the crappy epidemic that is the current music industry.
desaparecidos >>> you

Brilliant band fronted by Bright Eyes lead singer Conor Oberst, but has a much louder more agressive sound.
