Langhorne Slim - Engine EP Review

This four-song EP begins with "English Tea." The vocals in this song remind me somewhat of Bob Dylan when he was a younger lad. The violin gives this tune a real country/folk sort o feel.

The melody of "Honey Pie," particularly the slide guitar, reminds me of the Mojo Nixon song, "I'm Gonna Dig Up Howlin' Wolf." This is a much higher-energy song than the two that precede it and it includes a good scream by Langhorne Slim right in the middle.

"Sweet Olive Tree" is a drastic change from "Honey Pie." It is a mellow acoustic tune featuring only Langhorne Slim on an acoustic guitar. The change isn't just in the tempo, but also in the subject. This is a tune about a man who is spurned by his lover, hides a .22 under his shirt and goes to visit her at work.

This is a very brief prologue (only eleven minutes and change) to a full-length album due out in early 2007 and it does what it is supposed to. Namely, it piques your interest so you'll look for the full-length album when it hits stores. I know I'll be looking for it. These are four good, simple tunes that display Langhorne Slim's abilities as a songwriter.
