Album Review

New Zealand native Gin Wigmore's debut EP delivers the promise of a unique, new (if slightly divisive) voice in the crowded alternative singer/songwriter field. Wigmore hopped aboard the major-label train (Universal Australia) after nabbing the top prize in 2004's International Songwriting Contest in New York with "Hallelujah," a deeply personal lament for the then 16-year-old's deceased father. That song and four others make up the guts of Extended Play, a collection of bluesy, slightly off-kilter folk-pop that channels Feist and Fiona Apple with a twist. That twist would be Wigmore's impossible to ignore vocal style, a bourbon and unfiltered cigarette siren that sounds like the middle of a Joanna Newsom and Axl Rose teeter-totter. The production is top-notch, boasting soulful Tom Waits-inspired horn sections, thoughtful lyrics, and sass to spare, but Wigmore's heavily inflected vocal acrobatics keep this one firmly in the love it or hate it column.

Customer Reviews

Actually Listen to the Songs, Please!

Everyone in the world has a different voice. They all sound different and are unique. Gin Wigmore has a very unique sounding voice. Many might dismiss her talent after hearing it but stick around. The music is really good and I like her voice. There's a retro sound to her songs and she is talented. Bottom Line : Actually listen to these songs and then review them. Give Gin Wigmore a chance! :)

A Beautiful EP

Some of these reviews are so out there I gotta wonder if they're personal. I actually bought and listened to the record, and I'm loving it. The lyrics are heartbreaking and funny and wise. A little like early Fiona Apple, but weirder and sadder. Gin's voice is absolutely individual. It telegraphs emotion, from the playful flirtation of Under My Skin to the raw passion of These Roses. Anyone who makes the mistake of listening to the haters is missing out on a huge talent.

Brilliant!!

Wow...this is some of the most brilliant, new, fresh, music I've heard in years. Her voice is stunning and her songs are truly touching. I think she will become an artist that will mean something real to people for a long time to come. Well done, who ever you are Gin Wigmore!!
