Pujol excels at making just plain fun rock ‘n’ roll. On their newest single, band leader Daniel Pujol drawls along to crackling guitar rhythms with a scuzzy, Southern cadence, cajoling you into forgetting your troubles and having a good time. With groovy arpeggios and rollicking drum patterns, “Dark Knight in Shining Armor” is driven by a brazen grit not unlike that of fellow Nashville garage-rockers Natural Child. Pujol churns out cleaner-sounding, freewheeling pop tunes, though, and playful, jumpy vocal changes only add to the feel-good ambiance they embrace. Reunited States of Being is out September 27th on Saddle Creek as part of Cassette Store Day.
