about

Austin, TX songwriter/guitarist Nick “Buenos” Diaz explores the psychedelia on his debut full-length album. Recorded in an all analog format with local producer/engineer Daniel McNeil (White Denim,The Heavy), this collection of songs explores breaking away and being free in order to connect with what we really find important to us. Through a diverse palette of analog color, lo-fi fuzz and fiery guitar work, Diaz takes us into a world full of love, life, longing and inner turmoil creating a very honest and personal listening experience.

Track Name: Afternoon Novelas
what would you do
if you’re heart was about to stop
would you fall down give up
or get up, stand up
fight for life
would you fight for life

see i barely know my own brother
he’s a sensitive soul
who can lose control
but he’s one lovely father
i’m sure his baby boy appreciates the laughter

this is why we get up
stand up
fight for life
why we fight for life

let’s move on to my sister
she gave me this guitar
believed i’d go far belived i’d go far
she believed i'd go far

this is why we get up
stand up
fight for life
why we fight for life

now about my mother
she’s a strong woman
don’t need nobody she’ll get it done on her own
she loves her her children
and novelas in the afternoon
novelas in the afternoon

then there’s the old man
he weren’t around much
always hanging in the backyard
building castles and such
living life the best way he could
living life the best way he could

now we’re good friends
we catch up on the weekends
we catch up on the weekends

this is why we get up
stand up
fight for life
why we fight for life
Track Name: This Old Heart
this old heart is so so ready to be with you
if you're ready ready to be with me too
well baby
a little dreaming
a little bit of singing
a whole lot of touching
that turns into tingling
tingling for you
tingling for me

this old hearts so so ready to give to you
if you're ready ready to give right back to me
well baby
a little kissing
a little bit of hugging
a whole lot of touching
that turns into loving
loving for you
loving for me

my heart is ready for you
if you are ready for me
won't you tell me won't you tell me
if you're ready for me
this old heart is so so ready for you
this old heart is so so ready for you

a little dreaming
a little bit of singing
a whole lot of touching
that turns into tingling
Track Name: Weightless & Reckless
Throughout the rules that cause us to choose
Throughout the things that build walls around our hearts
Throughout the fashion books defining our looks

We open up to living by being
Weightless n reckless

Throughout the doors that open up wars
Throughout the things that build walls around our hearts
Throughout the songs that come from what's wrong

We open up to living by being
Weightless n reckless
Track Name: San Fransymphony
Violins and cellos
Form whimsical clouds
That circle her head for miles
Look out the window

San Fransymphy
Rings in her head
Playing notes
She wants to hear again

Tubas and Trumpets
Blow at night
And swallow the city whole
Look out the window

San Fransymphony
Rings in her head
Playing notes
That she wants to hear again

San Fransymphonies
Ring in her head
Playing notes
That she wants to hear again
Track Name: Santa Fe
Fee Fi Fo Fum I ain't no cowboy
I lost a gun battle
fighting for my life
This all happened down in Santa Fe

Dreamcatchers live inside my chest
Acrobatic dancers died by my my bed
This all happened down in Santa Fe

Ponchos covered the whole inside my chest
Navajo jewelry made my killer rich
This all happened down in Santa Fe
Track Name: Move On
When you build a home on two hearts that are wrong
It’s still a shock when someone moves on
No matter how hard you fight for the hearts
To stay together you’ll just have to move on
Call up a friend
They always understand When you
Move on

It’s the same old story over and over
For anyone who’s been in love and had to move on
Clean out a closet, walk out the door
Step on broken hearts that can’t be ignored
Call up a friend
They always understand
When you Move on

You can come out alive even more than before
When you dig your heart out of love’s rubble
A fresh set of eyes clear and bright
Open them up everything's alright
Call up a friend
They always understand
When you
Move on
Track Name: It Feels Good To Be A Texan
it feels good to be a texan
from the inner loop in houston
where the freeways carry you back home

it feels good to be a texan
keeping it weird in austin
where the neon lights shine bright

it feels good no matter where you are
dallas, fort worth stock yards
it feels good in san antone
on the river walk at the alamo

it feels good to be a texan
as a cowboy as a musician
it feels good no matter who you are
it feels good to be a texan
as a hipster as a mexican
it feels good no matter who you are

it feels good
Track Name: Muneca
what about the groove in the flower pocket
what about the barrettes in her hair
what about big noses
and preppy boys that isn't fair

No I'm no gepetto, no i'm not a king
i like sex in the air especially when i sing
Telephone calls, muneca dolls
lets plan a fashionable exit through a millionaire's wall

what about the moon and the stars
what about pink bras and colored cars
what about knickerbockers socks
and all the white collared jocks

No I'm not a skeptic though I might be a loon
I'm always smiling and I love a good mood
Confussing laws, muneca dolls
let's drop it all and just draw straws

what about a black sheep in a human herd
what about ribbons and bluebirds
what about innocence in the eye
makes me start to cry

I'm not a frenchman
i'm not a maniac
I'm simply the epitome of a romantic
Conical bras, muneca dolls
Pinnochio, Barbie and Ken should be locked in the garage
