Paul M. Davis – No Shoes, No Shirt, No Skinny Ties

PAUL MATTHEW DAVIS No Shoes, No Shirt, No Skinny Ties The closest thing I’ve done to a proper solo full-length—at least to date—No Shoes, No Shirt, No Skinny Ties is a largely acoustic album I recorded in 2003 while living in Crestline, CA. A number of these songs later turned up on the Mule Train CD, though many of them work better acoustically, at least in retrospect. I had quite the chip on my shoulder while writing these songs, so there’s plenty of fun rants about hipsters, mid-‘20s ennui, and my formulation of Ryan Adams and Conor Oberst as faux-twang carpetbaggers. This coming from someone whose primary country influence was Pavement. ANYWAYS, I still stand by all these positions, except when I don’t.
