about

Last weekend, while sifting through emails I was taken by a concisely worded email from Arthur Yoria asking me to take a listen to his new EP. Admittedly, I probably pay way to much attention to the local music scene and was immediately curious of a name that I didn’t recognize. After spending the last 5 days with Yoria’s latest release, I feel confident in saying if you don’t know of him already, you most likely will soon.
Arthur Yoria was born in Chicago, Illinois. He is a recent Austin transplant, but is not new to Texas — he attended high school and college in Houston, TX. He’s been releasing music since 2003 [if this website is to be believed] and has seen his songs used in commercials for Domino’s Pizza, Arizona Jeans and Cheapbooks.com, of all things. Yoria’s most recent full length release, 2009’s (281) is packed full of polished, smartly tongue-in-cheek, stoned-out power pop. Until Canciones, this seems to be standard fare for Yoria. But, within the first two seconds of his new EP, it is immediately apparent that something is different. Yoria’s mastery of the pop framework hasn’t gone anywhere, but in place of the electric guitars, the big big drums, and the slick studio sheen are two tastefully delicate acoustic guitars, two crafty voices, and a glaringly honest RIYIYB (Record it Youself in Your Bathroom) aesthetic that makes me weak in the knees. Yoria explains the transition as an excuse to tour Spain and Columbia [where his parents are from] as a duo with only acoustic guitars. Whatever the reason, this EP does indeed add a strong and relevant page not only to Yoria’s catalog of recorded material, but also to his standing as a songwriter.

Track Name: Fiesta Muerta
un ambiente seco/una toma larga
una sed al amanezer
una angustia buena/otra ficha mala
un escudo al reves

un tetero crea otra calavera
un ojo pequeno solo ve dos fronteras
sin embargo sigo con el mismo ombligo
y ganas de joder

con sus principios/los sucios y los limpios
con tu forma de ignorar
y con mi estado de mente/culpable o inocente
con mi nueva dignidad

un tetero crea otra calavera
un ojo pequeno solo ve dos fronteras
sin embargo sigo con el mismo ombligo
y un poco de poder

un tetero crea otra calavera
un ojo pequeno solo ve dos fronteras
sin embargo sigo con el mismo ombligo
y ganas de joder
Track Name: Con Razon
con razon me sostengo a punta de silencio y sol
y con razon me caen mal las voces que no se saben cayar

organisacion, disiplina y corazon/dedicacion
por sudor y por paciencia yo se lo que yo se
con razon

y con razon me acostumbre a no tener despues de tener

organisacion, disiplina y corazon/dedicacion
por sudor y por paciencia yo se lo que yo se

organisacion, disiplina y corazon/dedicacion
por sudor y por paciencia yo se lo que yo se
con razon
Track Name: Dele Risa
si yo te pido solo por tranquilidad y me la das
yo te doy la felicidad
y si te sigo pidiendo cosas me das por detras

en barrios limpios aprendi como hablar
y en barrios sucios me enseyaron como bailar
en barrios nuevos exciste un lucha mas tenaz

dele risa
dele libras de oxigeno de tanta risa
es bendita medicina
cada dia

con mucho afan y ganas de atropellar a todo el mundo
pienso que seria algo justo pero grito hacia arriva para no llorar

dele risa
dele libras de oxigeno de tanta risa
es bendita medicina
cada dia

dele risa
dele libras de oxigeno de tanta risa
es bendita medicina
cada dia
Track Name: Karla Con K
karla mire que me haces falta aun que yo ne te conozco
karla te cuento que soy un tonto pero entiendas que no es mi culpa

karla te pido que no me llames si no sientes lo que siento
karla te pido que vuelvas pronto porque yo no puedo respirar

tanto que hablo y tanto que miro
hay que confesar algo que veo y algo creo
algo que yo sone

karla tu foto me causa dolor cada ves que yo la toco
karla divina has mirado la mia?
o si no pues di mentira

tanto que hablo y tanto que miro
hay que confesar algo que veo y algo creo
algo que yo sone
