Twist And Shout

Pajaro Sunrise has a new album and that is very good news.'The Future Is Not What It Used To Be' presents a wonderful collection of songs that capture, almost unintentionally, the complexity of modern life.Since his last album, 'Man Of Many Faces', Yuri Mendez's days have been busy with five moves, a pandemic, several soundtracks and the surprise release of three singles in Spanish. And despite -or thanks to- the many unopened boxes, studio work, global emergencies and an unnecessarily large number of different rooms, out of those convulsive years emerged a luminous album that speaks lucidly of the passage of time, of truncated expectations that herald liberations and of growing old not as a drama, but as the long process of 'learning not to worry and to love the bomb'.Throughout the album, irony shines through, as in 'Small Circus, So Many Clowns' or 'Parking Lot', while pop innocence sparkles in 'Devotion' or 'Hey Matisse'; combined also with Pajaro Sunrise's more somber moments, such as 'The Mute And The Blind', 'Shallow Waters' or 'Inhale', where Mendez's voice reaches a new degree of maturity without completely shedding the candor of his first albums.Pajaro Sunrise is a rare specimen in Spanish independent music, a guy who treads his own path with a catalogue of exceptional songs and a diverse body of soundtrack work. He is a craftsman who has produced a flawless album which leaves room at times for traces of Mark Fisher and Ken Kesey, while other moments feature post-Lacanian puffy-cheek trumpet sounds.Tracklisting:A1.
