Continually shot out of a cannon, Pujol contorted through their latest flaming hoop with the recording and release of the EP Nasty, Brutish, and Short. Moving at the speed of the 1960s, the EP becomes Pujol's 10th release in less than two years after acclaimed singles, full lengths and EPs on various labels. 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.
Band brainchild Daniel Pujol fires through this seven-song collection, cramming every moment with swaggering melodies and gritty energy that reference the raw-edged rock & roll canon, leaving the listener humming along well after the EP's 19 minutes have passed. Opening track "Mayday," with its punky ray gun guitar, cave-stomping drums, and fuzzy hook, threatens to stay stuck in your head indefinitely, if not for the fact there's so much else to love here. "Emotion Chip (No Feeling)" is one such thing, blending off-kilter jangle with melancholy piano, while uptempo ballad "Scully" owes as much to 1950s soda-shop doo wop as it does to 1970s power pop. Nasty, Brutish, and Short is just that — but while the formula is simple, the result is wildly fun, immediate, and memorable.
