Devotees of the local rock scene have long kept an eye on scholarly philoso-punk songwriter Daniel Pujol and his outfit PUJOL. Those of us who care about the sort of reverse-engineered pop and whip-smart, big-picture lyrics — snarled as they may be — that Pujol seems to be born to make have snatched up each cassette and 7-inch that the titan of garage-rock DIY has churned out. But with the release of PUJOL’s full-length Saddle Creek Records debut, United States of Being (out today), the Pujolian songbook gets a retooling. On USoB, Nashville’s show-going rock ’n’ roll community will find a collection of mostly familiar songs that have now gestated for months and years in the creative pressure cooker that is Mr. Pujol’s brain. There’s the longtime live staple, “Endless Mike” — once a swift-moving rocker — suddenly stripped acoustic, backed with whirling atmospherics and landing closer to Radiohead’s The Bends than to Buzzcocks’ Love Bites. There’s “Black Rabbit,” once produced by Jack White and released as a Third Man Records single, now more about the song’s naturally pulsing, burning energy than dueling guitars or lighting-fast drum fills. But there’s new stuff, too, from the consumerism-critiquing “Made of Money” to the relentless, feel-good, punk-pop whirlwind of “Niceness.” And it’s all fashioned into one cohesive, ambitious, smartly arranged piece, adorned with found sounds — falling rain, cell phones buzzing and beeping — that are perhaps there to remind us that no art is made in a vacuum, and that Pujol, probably more than most, wants to say something meaningful about … well, everything. Tonight’s lineup is absolutely packed with stellar locals: Natural Child, D. Watusi and Fox Fun, not to mention several poetry readings.
