Nashville’s
ever-prolific (and pal of Jack White)  PUJOL resurfaces next month (Oct. 18) with an
EP for Saddle Creek. The evocatively-titled Nasty,
Brutish, and Short
– kind of a description for the general tenure of BLURT
interns, eh – is billed as focusing on “fragmentation,
compartmentalization, and the idea of cultural maxims dominating the
individual’s ability to vocalize and interact with the external world,
essentially being forced into speaking.”

 

Whoah, those are some big
words. At any rate, Daniel Pujol himself adds that he performs in the “loudest person’s language“, which “only resembles truth
because a lot of people heard it simultaneously. I wanted to stab at making a
narrative that would cyclically feed back into itself, oscillating between the
individual’s and the cultural lexicon. I finally got to assemble those songs
together on a single release.

 

 

While you chew on all that,
you can check out a couple of video clips, one a live version of new EP track “Mayday”
(Pujol: “This song is about my friend Richard Houston attaining maximum
grooviness by harnessing different viewpoints to gain a clearer perspective
aside from feigning teenage omniscience.”) and the other a previously
released number called “Black Rabbit.” And you can get a free MP3 download of “Mayday” at the Saddle Creek website to boot!
