Samantha Gilweit’s crisp, clear and captivating vocals immediately entrance the listener, captivating them instantly for this thoroughly enjoyable production.

Samantha’s voice just sounds sooo right, like you’re listening to an awesomely hilarious audio book with great backing tracks to boot. Upon first listen, I was drawn to the words and her wonderful voice. On a second listen (by choice), I found myself attracted to the incredible melodies and catchy lyrics. I caught myself singing her tunes while wandering around shopping the other day. Within one minute of listening to the first track, I was able to relate: living on the coast, pigs and porking, or lack thereof.

This is not just a silly CD or Cassette, it’s a great musical piece, with incredible songwriting and even an appearance from (seminal 90’s indie band) Jawbreaker’s Adam Pfahler!

If you’re into laughing, and appreciate quality music all in one package, I highly encourage you to seek out the Single.Mother.Fucker. EP by Samantha Gilweit!

Rating: 10 out 12 cans of PBR!

About Ben Allen

Our music editor Ben Allen was born one stormy evening in a quaint Northern California coastal village. Upon birth he was immediately exposed to the soothing analog sounds of artists such as Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Paul Simon, Captain Beefheart and Santana. As the lad grew, so did his appreciation for an assortment of abrasive hard rock. A pubescent flirtation with butt metal was shattered in the early 1990’s by exposure to Nirvana and other so-called “Alternative” bands. While in college, our protagonist became a DJ on a local station, and began work as a freelance music journalist. During this period he became entranced with artists such as Tortoise, Slint, Modest Mouse, Guided By Voices and Pavement. Currently Allen resides in Arcata, CA where he continues to obsess and salivate over new recordings by his favorite artists. He works with music industry people to ensure that Savage Henry’s contributors receive music and other promotional materials. He also writes a silly monthly list titled “Ben’s 10.”
