Taken from his breakdown of the tracks on the EP (full article):
4. Eres Tú
Eso de proyectar sabrosura todo el rato puede ser un gran dolor de cojones. Este tema salió como una confesión personal, ya que normalmente toco alrededor de 70 veces por año y nunca estoy en un lugar lo suficiente como para pillar confianza. Ha sido todo un proceso el aprender a estar solo, a apreciar el momento y a quienes te ofrecen su compañía. La parte movida de este track es un merengue futurista que interpreto en mi cabeza como una ultra-fiesta, el momento de estar rodeado de gente en un ritual de alegría. Luego la parte del dubstep es el bajón mismo, esa resaca emocional al día siguiente, momento en que vuelves a dejar todo atrás y empiezas de nuevo.
A rough translation by yours truly:
4. Eras Tú
Bringing the party all the time can be a giant pain in the ass. This track came up as a sort of personal confession since I normally play around 70 times a year and I’m never in the same place long enough to build up confidence with someone. It’s been a huge learning process trying to learn to be on my own, live in the moment and be grateful for the people who do come along for the ride. The upbeat part of this track is a future merengue that I think of as a huge party, that moment when you’re surrounded by people in a happy ritual. The dubstep part is the comedown, that next-day emotional hangover, the moment where you once again leave everything behind and start fresh.
Nobody could put it better.

The hyper-awesome energy of Math the Band is something you should never deny, just party along to it. This is off their unreleased album which seems to be more in the amazing vein of their 2009 release. They’re also touring with Andrew WK, so if you didn’t think that was enough party, they’re actually opening for the man who invented partying hard.

I can’t emphasize how much I want POWERLIFTER to come play in NYC. Straight out of Wichita (yeah, I was confused too), POWERLIFTER combines all that excellent partyrager vibe, Game Boy sounds and vocals.
You can get both of their albums from their Spinshop.
May your parties this weekend be as good, if not better, than the one featured here.
