PUJOL – Kludge

More melodic and instrumentally varied than 2012’s UNITED STATES OF BEING, Daniel Pujol’s sophomore album, Kludge, delves deeper into the fantastical mind of the Tennessee punk rocker. Pujol named the album “kludge,” meaning an “ill-assorted collection of poorly matching parts, forming a distressing whole,” to capture the odd recording spaces in which the album was produced (such as a teen suicide prevention center and a garage undergoing construction). But “distressing” is a bit too harsh to describe the final product. If anything, the garage punk LP is relatable and approachable — even for listeners who aren’t normally fans of punk.
