If Jack White has anything to say about it, one of Nashville’s brightest stars, Pujol, will be at the top of everyone’s “OMG, I <3 This Band” playlist very very soon, if not already. With a sound reminiscent of your high school boyfriend’s band– you know that swoon-inducing kind of rock you wouldn’t really be into unless he was singing about you, until of course you learned a thing or two about music. This time Daniel Pujol, who’s last name is just darn cool enough as a moniker, may as well be singing about all of us. The boys will like the no-fuss delivery and the girls will, well, they’ll love it too.
Along with fellow Nashville boys, Turbo Fruits, the crew reminded Brooklyn that a good guitar hook, reverb or not, will get a crowd moving at Saturday’s Death By Audio show. On Jonas Stein of Turbo Fruits newest endeavor, Turbo Time Records, we can expect tons of vinyl coming in the direction of fans eager to eat up the booming southern city’s sound– thanks to friends JEFF The Brotherhood and the like, who’ve already paved pothole free lanes for any boy with a large sound holding a guitar. The label, which launched on October 12th with limited edition presses of both bands, will be announcing a larger roster soon– think Underwater Peoples via the Mississippi River (that’s close to Nashville, right!?).
We’re excited to have Pujol as a part of our CMJ lineup tomorrow night at Glasslands, for many other reasons than the fact that our readers will be able to say “Oh yeah, I saw that band before they got ridiculously huge”– although we’ve always been the kind of assholes who don’t mind bragging rights.
Check out the interview with Mr. Pujol after the jump for a little more insight on what makes him tick, what song he can’t live without, and what planet he’d live on if music wasn’t his thing.
