If there’s one thing Diaz knows how to do, it’s entertaining, and there’s plenty to be entertained about on his new album Metanoia.

If he is able to maintain the standard he’s set for himself on Metanoia, the sky will truly be the limit for this talented star in the making.
Beginning with a cheeky snap of the whip, Diaz’s release “Cowboy Cult” (also on Metanoia) quickly makes you smile, even as Diaz’s lyrics feel slightly frustrated. As he sings lines like “I'm just living into question / No direction, I should ease up on the Tension,” you get the sense that Max Diaz isn’t as satisfied as he first appeared.
Between the groovy instrumentals that invoke imagery of saloons and Diaz’s impassioned performance, “Cowboy Cult” is a slightly country take on alternative and indie rock. Diaz has definitely done more than just make it work here, though; he’s made it sound amazing.
