Despite not covering a lot of Latinx music here, we've been getting more and more into Chicago's Dos Santo. Maybe it's because they're considered an alt-Latinx band, but they're music just works for us. Their latest single, "Alma Cósmica," is a short two minute burst of a song where the only complaint is that we want more. There's a 1960's spy movie soundtrack groove under the song, over hypnotic lyrics and killer saxophone. It has an edge to it that isn't quite punk but has some of punk's roots. As someone who knows embarrassingly little Spanish, "Alma Cósmica" is an impossible to resist track.
You can watch the video for "Alma Cósmica" below. City of Mirrors is due out October 15 on International Anthem. You can pre-order the album at the label's Bandcamp. For more on Dos Santos, check out the band's website. There is an album release/Dia de los Muertos show happening in Chicago at Marz Community Brewing on October 30.
