Desaparecidos, Conor Oberst’s political punk band, have only ever released one album, and that was way the hell back in 2002. But last year, Oberst got the band back together and released two new songs, “MariKKKopa” and “Backsell.” And now they’ve got another two songs loaded up and ready to go, both of them fiery, righteous rockers. “Anonymous” salutes the titular hacker cabal, “The Left Is Right” shouts out the Occupy movement, and both make convincing arguments that Oberst never should’ve stopped belting shit out like this. Listen to both songs at Rolling Stone.
The self-released “Anonymous” b/w “The Left Is Right” single is out 3/12.
