about

Pajaro Sunrise is Yuri Méndez. Yuri Méndez is a prolific guy. Over the past ten years he's produced albums for other artists, translated a book from English to Spanish (Perfecting Sound Forever, by Greg Milner, the first edition of which sold out pretty quickly, while the second one is well on its way to do exactly the same), made music for large advertising campaigns (Vodafone, for example), soundtracked the poems of actor, comedian and poet Hovik Keuchkerian, and, most of all, wrote and recorded a large amount of songs, many of which featured on his four albums.

And yet, Oh My is his first album since Kulturkatzenjammer, which came out in the autumn of 2013. The release coincides with the tenth anniversary of Pajaro Sunrise's first album, and, as its subtitle explains, features a collection of songs that have not been released officially until now – twenty-two tracks that have been on the shelves for some time, but are now saved from oblivion.

Quite a few of those tunes are new, recorded by Yuri because, well, writing, playing and recording music is simply a basic need to the man. Others have different origins: “A Different Scene” is a song written for a beautiful animation made in 2012 for a UNICEF fundraising campaign; “Reel Of The World” was a bonus track on the Japanese edition of the first Pajaro Sunrise album; some titles are alternate takes on previously released songs featured on previous albums; and there's a handful of cover versions – tunes that have been important to him over the years, enough so that he decided to make them his: Bruce Springsteen's “I'm On Fire”, “Earth Angel” by The Penguins, The Beatles' “Girl”, “Swingin' Party” by The Replacements, Johnny Cash's “Guess Things Happen That Way”, Bill Withers' “Just The Two Of Us”, and “All Ears” by The Whitest Boy Alive.

All in all, Oh My is a generous piece of work with 22 songs that deserved a release – a marvellous album that once again confirms that Yuri Méndez is one of the most talented musicians in Spain.


Pajaro Sunrise es Yuri Méndez. Yuri Méndez es un tipo prolífico. En los últimos tiempos ha producido discos para otros artistas, ha traducido un libro (El sonido y la perfección, que ha agotado su primera edición y va camino de hacer lo mismo con la segunda), ha creado música para grandes campañas publicitarias (Vodafone), ha musicalizado los poemas de Hovik Keuchkerian y sobre todo ha compuesto y grabado muchas canciones, muchas de las cuales han brillado en sus 4 discos.

Y sin embargo Oh My es su primer álbum desde que lanzase Kulturkatzenjammer en otoño de 2013. Estará en la calle coincidiendo con los diez años de la aparición de primer trabajo como Pajaro Sunrise y el disco, como dice su subtítulo, recoge un montón de canciones que no habían aparecido en ninguno de sus trabajos previos. Veintidós canciones que estaban empezando a hacerse fuertes en el estudio o en lugares poco transitados, pero que afortunadamente ahora ven la luz en el maravilloso formato álbum.

Buena parte de las canciones del álbum son nuevas y están grabadas por esa necesidad vital de Yuri que le mueve a componer, tocar, grabar y escribir canciones. Hay otras grabaciones que llegan al disco por otros caminos: “A Different Scene” es una canción que compuso para una preciosa pieza de animación que se hizo en 2012 para recaudar dinero para Unicef, “Reel Of The World” salió como bonus track en la edición japonesa de su primer álbum, hay un par de versiones distintas de las que finalmente terminaron en sus discos previos y hay un puñado de versiones. Canciones que han sido importantes para Yuri y en algún momento ha decidido recrear: aquí están a “I'm On Fire” de Bruce Springsteen, “Earth Angel” de The Penguins (o de Regreso al futuro, si creciste en los 80), “Girl” de The Beatles, “Swingin' Party” de The Replacements, “Guess Things Happen That Way” de Johnny Cash, “Just The Two Of Us” de Bill Withers y “All Ears” de The Whitest Boy Alive reinterpretadas por Pajaro Sunrise.

Oh My es un trabajo generoso con 22 canciones que merecían estar en un disco, un disco maravilloso que otra vez confirma que Yuri Méndez es uno de los tipos con más talento que pueblan estas latitudes.
