Biography

Desario is indie pop superheroes John Conley, Michael Yoas, Jim Rivas and Mike Carr. Their members have been in many well-established and popular Sacramento area indie pop bands including The California Oranges, Holiday Flyer, The Sinking Ships and Rocketship. Their first album, Zero Point Zero, was released in March, 2009 on Darla Records. They are current finishing recording their second album, which should be released near the beginning of 2011.

“I’m quite enamored with a self-titled three-song disc by Desario, and if this is a taste of the forthcoming album the band’s still working on (Zero Point Zero, due in October from once-local indie Darla Records), it’s gonna be a real peach. “Cane Cola” is all gleaming chrome over pastoral sweetness, more melodic and soaring than the reworked Joy Divisionisms of Interpol, with John Conley’s friendly and inviting voice surfing over his and Michael Yoas’ intertwined clean electric guitars, with bassist Mike Carr underpinning the song while drummer Jim Rivas splatters around like Moby Grape’s Skip Spence on “Omaha.” The second track, “Fine Time,” continues the feel, while “Nautical Ways” has more jangle along with shouted background vocals. All three are winners; Desario has a sense of melody and dynamics that is captivating.”
