PUJOL surfed the amber waves of grain into St. Louis on July 9 to dispatch bizzaro-speed incantations into the microphones of Mystery Train.

Streaming Audio

The Nashville-based trio belted out four new tunes from the recent release "United States of Being" and reached back a few years to their Third Man Records 12-inch for another. Breathing life into songs can be difficult under the influence of morning sunlight and eye crusties. PUJOL had no trouble summoning the dark spirit of rock and roll in KDHX studios. Though "United States of Being" sounds a little cleaner than PUJOL's prior releases, the raw energy of the live recordings burnishes their kinetic rock. Garages aren't cold static domains like a Mac store; they're dark grease smudges melting under sweat and the inspiration that it takes to push through.

If a string breaks, keep playing and worry about it at the end of the song. Strings break all the time. The world's an imperfect place. PUJOL is not Principal Vernon. PUJOL keeps playing through it. That's how it is in DIY2K.
