Pleasure's Paradox is #Flyah


With the new EP release Home From Home, songwriter Cristian Gonzalez shows a natural talent for putting out strong, emotionally charged, pop songs with indie rock attitude and radio ready perfection.

The EP released under the name Pleasure's Paradox, is Cristian's personal project and has already started catching a buzz enough for him to appear live with grammy nominated song writers like Maxwell Hughes of The Lumineers.

The first single "When You Leave Me", is an up beat, high energy, catchy pop song that really features the artists fun soulful vocals and layered guitar hooks.

"The theme of this song focuses on people in our lives that may not be around anymore. Whether it is a past loved one, somebody you are close to yet cannot always be with, or even an old friend whom you’ve lost touch with over time. It is about missing relationships of all types." says the songwriter of the single.

Cristian has been writing since he was only 15 years of age, and tried his hand in a few bands through out everything, but didn't really find his calling until he realized the direction he needed to go was solo. Writing and recording almost all instrumentation, and having control over the sound he wanted is important to his process.

The artist explains, "Working on these songs has given me the opportunity to think in ways musically that were never an option for me. I have for the most part been a solo acoustic player for a long time, so my producer and I were able to bring my music to a whole new level with the addition of various instrumental parts in the song. It has given me the chance to prove what I have always wanted, which is that I am so much more than just a guy with a wooden box and strings. "

Along with indie rock, and pop songs, the Home From Home EP also upholds a unique set of folk songs that bring things back to its roots with instrumentation like Mandolin and acoustic guitars.

The EP is available now on several outlets for digital download and Cristian plans on a tour for Pleasure's Paradox this summer.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
