about

The song "Hurt My Pride" was featured as the 'Coolest Song In The World' on Little Steven's Underground Garage radio show on March 3rd, 2013!!!

"Every time Sam Lunsford releases a record I give thanks. Hurt My Pride is the single with attitude. It sounds like Lunsford has been listening to Love and Them. It’s full of spite, antipathy and of course tons of melody." - The Finest Kiss


"My immediate reaction was that “Hurt My Pride”, one of the oldest compositions, is the strongest Young Sinclairs song to date. Taking a credible step from folk-rock into garage or even freakbeat territory, the vocal is delivered with real attitude. It’s a straightforward and no-nonsense track and with that we already have a contender for single of the year 2013. The first b-side “Someone Like the Hawk” veers straight back into gentle folk, bathed in 12-string picking that sounds like it was laid down after many listens to comps like Byrds Won’t Fly Today (Misty Lane). The last track “Nothin’ to Say” is the biggest departure for the group however, with its crude frat-rock sound. It works very well, perhaps the closest they’ve come to something with enough of a beat to play to a dancefloor. The Kingsmen would be a good reference point, but it also reminds me of “Night of the Phantom” by Larry & the Blue Notes." - Krister Bladh, Record Turnover

Track Name: Hurt My Pride
you run your mouth all day long
I can't get you to say a word
seems like the truth is somethin' you don't think I deserve
you better tell me everything about your other guy
or little girl you know that one of us is gonna cry

you tried to hurt my pride
you tried to hurt my pride
yeah but you don't know
you say that you don't know now girl

you say that you don't know
just what's goin' on
I know that you just can't admit
how you done me wrong
you're doin' evil
'cause you can't understand my happiness girl
yeah you don't know

tried to hurt my pride
you tried to hurt my pride
Track Name: Someone Like The Hawk
you crease unfolding layers waving highly with the gusts
they can't interview you babe
you spin between the glaciers and you glance beneath the rusts
of the generations laid
east of nowhere is your prison when you raise up off the Earth
it's the planet where you stay but it don't concern you
cause you're just like him
you pick up where you need to and you don't know how it works
you're the only one who'll say that it don't concern you
cause you're just like him
and you don't need to tell your story to no papers or no magazines again
Track Name: Nothin' To Say
nobody's talking baby - nobody's making a sound
they can't move their bodies - nobody's wearing a smile
so tell me why you came here and paid your way
and please tell me why you got nothin' to say
cross your arms and shake your leg - you're closed up tight
you move the way they want you to - all through the night
so tell me why you stand there and won't let me take you away
the way you're speaking to me I got nothin' to say
you worry yourself to death baby - trying to be loved
you gotta try to please yourself - and not everyone
so tell me why you'd want me to sleep on through the day
and please tell me why you got nothin' to say
