The legislative beat
When you google "Diego Bernal," you get lots of hits about a Texas state rep from San Antonio. Try "Diego Bernal music" and you get this Diego Bernal's Bandcamp page. And this Diego Bernal is also from San Antonio. And is also a representative in the Texas legislature.
The tracks are instrumental, but they speak volumes. Bernal is a master at the sly, slinky groove, and the layers he adds bring moments of wonder, joy and bewilderment. Oh, and plenty of whimsy. There's a track titled "I Met Prince Paul!". And it sounds exactly like what you imagine such a conversation might sound.
The perfect party platter for my neighborhood, which is populated with activists, staffers for liberal members of Congress and journalists. I have a feeling it fits in well in many other places as well. Easily the best 2017 musical release from an elected official. Superb.
