CLINT MAUL: Ninguna Amplificación!: 7”

Jan 23, 2008

Clint Maul is the kind of country singer who might bristle at the title, for as Tom Russell said, “Don’t call me no country singer, those are poison words these days.” His voice might be seasoned by years of whiskey and cigarettes, or the same spent screaming in a punk band, or both. The two A-side songs on this 7” are slow, worn-out, sad country songs played on acoustic guitar and harmonica, with the B-side picking up the beat slightly and taking the sound a little further from southern soil. This ain’t no or folk-punk, this is just country, the way it should be.
