For the past few years, Nashville's Daniel Pujol has cranked out scuzzy, catchy tracks that combine youthful energy with lyrical precociousness. Following last year's Nasty, Brutish, and Short EP, Pujol and his namesake band are back with their debut album, United States of Being. Opener "DIY2K" sets the pace, with Pujol's rough, gritty vocals relating his feel-good lifestyle, while "Providence" shimmers with power pop hooks and a slight dose of fuzz. Just like the Nashville DIY scene, United States of Being is loud, a little grimy and fun as hell. PUJOL might be growing up fast, but they're having the best time doing it. 

United States of Being is out June 5th on Saddle Creek.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
