We have been dying to give some love to one of our new favorite bands, Chile’s Protistas. Their music is ‘fit’ on apparel, very attached to those moments of youth when one is anxious (with fear and joy) to grow up. Yes, they remind me of Gus Van Sant, who happens to be one of our favorite filmmakers and the director of the overlooked, best film of the '00s Paranoid Park. Protistas has just about everything to breakthrough as one of the year’s discoveries, although they’ve generated buzz since last year. “Nortina’s War” is the first cup from an upcoming EP they will be releasing under Cazador, home of Los Mil Jinetes and Fother Muckers. You can currently grab their awesome song “Videocamara” on our latest compilation.
