José Díaz Rohena, who records music as Liquid Playboys, has taken a long and winding road to releasing his album this past March. Actually: several long and winding roads. There’s the genre road, which leads from his past as a Pavement-loving guitarist and intermittent indie rocker to full-on electronic music producer. There’s the physical location road, otherwise known as moving from quaint Park Slope, Brooklyn to bustling Berlin. There’s the employment road, which has taken him from jingle-writing commercial studio engineer to music software developer.
And I suppose I also need to mention the literal road upon which a bus crash (which was passenger-less, don’t worry!) afforded Díaz Rohena an insurance windfall that set him up toward making music digitally. So imagine an aerial view of one of those extremely complicated highways in, like, Texas and you can get the whole road visual I’m trying to conjure up to correspond to this musical career.
