Nasty, Brutish, and Short, the debut Saddle Creek release from PUJOL, is out now on colored vinyl 10", CD, and digital. The EP precedes a full-length due out in the spring. Head to the Online Store to pick up a copy.
PUJOL touring is underway, running through November 11. The tour meets up with Ted Leo & The Pharmacists beginning October 25. Check out the full list of shows below.
Continually shot out of a cannon, PUJOL contorted through his latest flaming hoop with the recording and release of the EP Nasty, Brutish, and Short. Moving at the speed of the ‘60’s, the EP becomes PUJOL’s 10th release in less than two years after acclaimed singles, full lengths and EPs on Third Man, Infinity Cat, Evil Weevil, Jeffrey Drag, Turbo Time and Velocity of Sound.
Nasty, Brutish, and Short focuses 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, what PUJOL calls, 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.” All throughout this unapologetically from-the-hip release, PUJOL marries a lyric of intent to the tune of the uncontrollable variables of a life in what he describes as, “E-merican Realism” that is sure to ensnare fans of rock and roll, as well as Rockwell.
