about

After a decade in the underbelly of the DFW folk scene, 2008 saw the unveiling of Clint Niosi’s most ambitious work to date, “The Sound of Dead Horses Beaten Against Cold Shoulders”. The album is a cornucopia of lyrically heavy roots/folk/rock music covered with lush horn and string harmonies. The Fort Worth Weekly noted Clint’s “quavering, Donovan-ian voice, plummeting and soaring vocal melodies, and gently finger-picked, harmonious acoustic guitar steeled by moments of dissonance.” On the album Clint examines topics including, several versions of the afterlife, the subjective nature of truth, overactive idealism, and perseverance. “The Sound...” has been described by some as “Andrew Bird meets Magnetic Fields meets Led Zeppelin III”, however Clint feels the title to be an apt description in the driest humor.

The Sound of Dead Horses Beaten Against Cold Shoulders was named one of the 20 best Texas albums of 2008 by the Fort Worth Star Telegram. It went on to be nominated for "Album of the Year" by the Fort Worth Weekly who listed "My Mephistophis" as one of the best songs of the decade.
