Listen to Mayday

"A blazing, Southern-fried garage punk sound that makes his band one of the Volunteer State's about-to-be-favorite sons." SPIN

"With his influences grounded in the classics—the Beatles and the Rolling Stones (not to mention Hobbes)—we can only expect more good things from Daniel Pujol." PREFIX

"PUJOL is a swirl of Tennessee swagger with No Age boom and Ramones grit -- low-fi but high-energy, equally parts the sidewalk and the porch." HUFFINGTON POST

"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" ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"Addictive is an understatement. These toe-tapping jams are hard to get out of your head." CMJ

"The Tennessee native, now based out of Nashville, is nothing short of prolific. But perhaps what’s most impressive about his one-man band called PUJOL is that each release is good, catching the ears of everyone from Jack White to Saddle Creek Records (the label behind Conor Oberst)." ELLE

"Some twang and a skipped beat now and then, with a little self-revelation in the lyrics." NY TIMES

"A searing, garage-punk powerhouse." NOISEY

"Their bouncy tunes were a bit slicker than I'm used to my garage rock being, but Daniel Pujol's raspy voice and tastefully applied distortion kept it rough around the edges." VILLAGE VOICE

"They're really, really, highly energetic. And that's a good place to start. If you don't have that electricity and energy to begin with, it's harder to get to someplace new, someplace that musicians haven't gone to before. It's a wild abandon inside them. I can see that it's inside of those guys, and it's just gonna keep snowballing. In three or four years from now, it's just gonna get bigger, and bigger, and bigger.”JACK WHITE

"Socrates of the house show circuit" NASHVILLE SCENE

"They've got a gritty, garage-band sound, but with guitar riffs and catchy hooks that are hard to resist." NYLON
