Together, this collection of seemingly disparate sounds works because there’s a genuine feeling of spontaneity and that these songs were simply pulled out of their creator’s head as quickly as they came into it, for the sake of creating. And this is where Greg Puciato can take comfort, because this energy is all his own, and therein lies purpose. It is pure, honest expression, art for art’s sake, capturing a spark before it vanishes, whatever form that may take in the finished product. And sometimes, a more intellectual meaning or explanation is completely moot, because simply doing things in the moment and living on impulse and guts and heart and fist are what make us remember we’re alive. And in a time where our wings have been clipped as they have, such basic joys are not just important, but vital to remember.
