PUJOL :: Nasty, Brutish, and Short

As PUJOL, Nashville-based musician Daniel Pujol writes and records loud and undeniably catchy garage-born pop music. PUJOL has put out records on countless labels including JEFF The Brotherhood's Infinity Cat and Jack White's Third Man, and now continues that prolific trend on October 18th with a new EP for Saddle Creek titled Nasty, Brutish, and Short. There's hints of both the power-pop smarts of The Nerves and the sardonic recklessness of The Replacements here, which creates an irresistible and highly combustible concoction: blazing-hot honey-glazed hooks that feel as if they could implode and fall apart at any given moment. Every song here flys out of the gate as if propelled by rocket fuel, but particularly invigorating is the 1:40-long foot-stomper "Stuff," where Pujol choruses over roaring guitars: "I must be consistent with what I believe in / Or I live a lie." It's a straightforward and simple line, but it's also one that sticks. Pujol's music is fuzzed-out and brash, and if we're being honest, it just wouldn't feel right any other way.

The 7-track 18-minute EP is available digitally and on 10" colored vinyl. Pre-order here.
