Clint Niosi - For Pleasure and Spite (OO, 2012)
Producer, Arranger, Recording Engineer, Mixer, Multi-Instrumentalist
In August of 2012 Clint Niosi released his "sophomore" album For Pleasure and Spite to rave reviews. For Pleasure and Spite sees Clint teaming up once again with producer/arranger James Talambas (The Theater Fire/The Migrant) and enlisting some of North Texas’ finest players including Petra Kelly (Spooky Folk, Hares on The Mountain), Tamara Brown (Telegraph Canyon, Polyphonic Spree), and Heather Schimp-Test (Polyphonic Spree).
Written during the period following the end of a four year relationship and the death of Clint’s mother For Pleasure and Spite weaves a crooked path through a dark dangerous and psychedelic world. Lighting the way through the darkness is Clint's dry and sardonic sense of humor which navigates the listener safely through the album's duration.
