Nigel Silverthorn - Homesick EP

Nigel Silverthorn - Homesick EP
Record Label: Unsigned
Release Date: March 1, 2010

Who?

Formerly from The Natalie Fight, Nigel Silverthorn is an (I’ll get eaten alive for this diction) indie rock musician sure to turn heads. Like his friends in Trophy Scars, Silverthorn enjoys the DIY, independent approach, and exhibits it to the fullest with the release of his Homesick EP.

How is it?

Nigel Silverthorn’s voice is definitely an acquired taste, but for those who can embrace and enjoy it, this EP is near perfect. Unbelievably catchy and surprisingly blues-y, the Homesick EP is a breath of fresh air to all listeners. Stand out tracks include “Make Me A Movie”; which still hasn’t left my head since this CD came in the mail, incorporating tasteful octaves along with a blues solo towards the end to keep the listener on his toes; and “Love All The Time”; keeping a softer but equally driving pace, better exhibiting Silverthorn’s vocal ability than most tracks. The title track is the only song I don’t find myself listening to; while Silverthorn’s talent is truly exhibited with a full band, I find his acoustic performance lackluster. Nevertheless, this EP is worth every penny (assuming you buy music…of course…), and its strengths more than make up for the few weaknesses found.
