Schwebel and Quesada go way back to their days in Laredo where they both occupied the same high school; and Hallahan and Schwebel worked together as Dan Auerbach’s backing band known as the Fast Five during Auerbach’s solo tour for <em>Keep it Hid</em>.</p> Thu, 22 May 2014 20:47:27 +0000 Scarlett Cerna 41068 at http://iowapublicradio.org The Spanish Gold Conquest: South of Nowhere Scarlett Reviews: PUJOL's new album "Kludge" http://iowapublicradio.org/post/scarlett-reviews-pujols-new-album-kludge <p><em>Kludge,</em> the follow-up to Nashville based PUJOL’s 2012 debut <em>UNITED STATES OF BEING</em>, continues the journey of self-discovery juxtaposed with an imaginative, uncertain future involving lizards and cyborgs along with a questionable present reality. The influence of punk and garage rock is definitely there, but it is the traces of pop and folky blues, interwoven with Daniel Pujol’s seemingly lighthearted yet heavy lyrics that make <em>Kludge</em>—“a crock that works.” &nbsp;</p> Tue, 06 May 2014 14:29:52 +0000 Scarlett Cerna 40223 at http://iowapublicradio.org Scarlett Reviews: PUJOL's new album "Kludge" Scarlett Picks: 2014 Mission Creek Festival Artists http://iowapublicradio.org/post/scarlett-picks-2014-mission-creek-festival-artists <p></p> Tue, 01 Apr 2014 21:33:06 +0000 Scarlett Cerna 38472 at http://iowapublicradio.org Scarlett Picks: 2014 Mission Creek Festival Artists Scarlett Picks: Hot Spring Artists and Releases http://iowapublicradio.org/post/scarlett-picks-hot-spring-artists-and-releases <p>Spring is here, and if you didn’t get to head down to the South by Southwest festivities in Austin, no worries!
