For anyone, it’s good to reflect on your goals and see which dominoes can teeter now towards great results ten years from now. And for someone as accomplished as Austin’s Nick Diaz, we’d be surprised if Buenos Diaz was far from what he first envisioned in Brooklyn back in 2010. Nick’s semi-eponymous lo-fi alt-pop project is a catchy testament to his chops as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and with BD’s upcoming full-length Cocaine Queen, Diaz performs on guitar, bass, keyboard, vocals, and percussion.
Cocaine Queen was mixed by Houston engineer Dan Workman (whose repertoire ranges from Beyoncé to ZZ Top) and mastered by Grammy nominee Kevin Blackler, a perfect match for the level of talent displayed by Diaz across these ten new offerings. You can get acquainted with Buenos Diaz’s new mistress of addiction on August 5th, with two more singles due out over the next few months. Cocaine Queen’s title track dropped today, so bend the knee before your highness of inhibitions and rejoice in this glitzy, glam-rock-meets-disco-funk dance groove.
