Song(s) of the Day # 832 Mueran Humanos

My new favourite band! An Argentinian duo, based in Berlin with that warm, dark, vaguely threatening, industrial urban synth sound pioneered most obviously by Suicide. Their name translates as 'death to humanity' which tips you the wink as to their pre-occupations and general disposition. Still it all sounds just great with the vocals intoned in Spanish. They draw on a clear heritage, but like similarly inspired Australian band Total Control manage to twist things into modern sounding and quite compelling shapes. These two selections come from their most recent  album, Miseress, released last year on the ATP label. Very taken by this! Hopefully, you won't find the images above and below distressing.
