Buenos Diaz takes us on a bluesy journey to a Mexican-American Neighborhood with their album “Fox Street Blues,” released this September 25. Nick Diaz is at the helm, handling vocals, guitars, bass, and percussion. Recorded and produced by Nick Diaz in Austin, TX, and mastered by Kevin Blackler in Brooklyn, NY, “Fox Street Blues” is a sonic adventure worth exploring.
The album kicks off with “Hope,” an attention-grabbing instrumental piece. It begins with a chaotic and unsettling intro featuring grinding guitars that rev up the tension. The track rides you through a continuous buzz. With distant chanting and intense drumming, the eerie atmosphere is complete.
“Nothing To Lose” bursts onto the scene with lively guitar jams and thumping drums. The husky, high vocals deliver an upbeat, catchy, and groovy melody.
A standout track, “The Blues Live In Texas,” starts with a catchy guitar tune and rhythmic drumming. Here, the vocals take on a more calm and confident tone.
Closing out the album is “Little Wing,” which begins with an echoing guitar tune and a sound similar to water dropping in the background. As the drums fall into the immersion with a groovy and funky rhythm, sultry, slow-paced vocals take center stage. It’s a smooth and soulful way to wrap up the album.
Whether you’re a blues aficionado or simply looking for some catchy, soulful tunes, “Fox Street Blues,” by Buenos Diaz delivers a satisfying musical experience.
