Rolling Stone: “Just like the Nashville DIY scene, United States of Being is loud, a little grimy and fun as hell. PUJOL might be growing up fast, but they’re having the best time doing it.”
More and more, Nashville is proving itself as good of a breeding ground for frantic good-time garage rock bands as it has historically been for crooning country songs. One of the latest examples is PUJOL, a four-piece led by guitarist Daniel Pujol. The band channels the youthful reckless abandon we’ve heard from Nashville acts like Be Your Own Pet and Turbo Fruits, as well as the slight southern twang of the Black Lips.
After a steady succession of EP’s and MP3 packages, PUJOL released their first full-length album earlier this year, entitled United States of Being. They’ve been getting more and more attention from the music industry ever since, even getting the opportunity of a recording session at fellow Nashvillian Jack White’s Third Man Records studio with White himself manning the mixing board.
With the way things are going, PUJOL’s performance at MidPoint may be our last chance to see the group perform while they’re still relatively under the radar. One thing’s for sure: PUJOL themselves will be having a great time.
