Balky Mule kicks ass


THE Balky Mule, as the name implies, does not function as expected.
For Australian one-man band Sam Jones doesn't burden himself with a standard guitar, bass and drums set-up.
His off-the-wall indie guitar work on The Length Of The Rail is almost skeletal in its sparseness for the best part - which begins charming and quirky, but ends up as a bit frustrating.
Because when the meat of actually strumming is put on the bones of tracks - such as on Wireless, Instead or previous Sound Advice freebie Range - it proves that The Balky Mule can carry a tune and indeed kick ass.
