CD Review : “Holy Smoke” – Gin Wigmore
Hard to believe she’s only 23 !! Gin was born in Auckland, and currently resides in Sydney. Ms. Wigmore’s addictive vocals highlight her debut full-length CD “Holy Smoke”, a follow up to last years’ EP “Extended Play”. Mike Elizondo ( known for his work with Fiona Apple & Regina Spektor ) is producer, and The Cardinals ( as in Ryan Adams & The Cardinals ) are her backup band. As a result, this new effort rocks !! It’s really a mix of pop, soul, blues, and rock & roll, with just a touch of emo. Recorded at Capitol Studios in California, “Holy Smoke” showcases her dynamic songwriting ability with music intensity that eclipses that on Gin’s EP, which was a top 10 chart item in her native New Zealand. Personally, I like her voice and vocal style a lot. I expect “Holy Smoke” will easily be one of my top 10 releases of the year. There’s not a dud track to be found here; highly recommended are “Dying Day”, “I Do”, “One Last Look”, and “Golden Ship”. You’ll be able to listen to and enjoy selections from this dynamite CD on “Scandinavia To San Diego” and other WHUS shows featuring world music.

once before America needs more Vampire TV. ;) I'm just a bit sad to learn that Tony won't be there.Don't get me wrong, I do love the weogrd up Tony from the Smoke series, but I have a serect addiction to Tony the Hustler, which has long since vanished by the time we come to the Smoke series, and I feel like we didn't see enough of Tony the Hustler in the Blood books so I was hoping the TV series would give us more of him.What makes this even more depressing for me is that I doubt a Tony TV series will ever be developed anyway. Don't mean to depress anyone, but I just can't see it happening; for one reason really - The Smoke books didn't sell well enough for us to even get a fourth book, therefore I just can't see there being enough interest to get a TV series greenlighted. *sad*I think even if the Smoke books picked up in sales we still wouldn't have much hope of a Tony TV series. And now to find that Henry wouldn't be around for it even if he did... Just depressing. Yes, I happen to like the angst between Tony and Henry in Smoke and Mirrors and especially Smoke and Ashes, and I think without that any Tony series (books, TV, movie, whatever) would simply be missing something that would make it great. Not that it would totally suck without Henry, just that I think without him something would feel missing, despite the smallish part he has in the Smoke series.
