Nic Nassuet - Eleutherios

.
Nic Nassuet is a curious artist. His Eleutherios EP includes a wide variety of music. One called "Black Dress," for instance, finds the singer vocalizing with a scratchy, hard rock voice, even though he's signing it over an acoustic guitar and violin. It's almost as though he's a heavy metal guy performing one of his band's hits unplugged. Only this isn't an unplugged version of a song, but its original.

Nassuet is as influenced by by Gothic rock as he is inspired by more folk-ish artists like Nike Drake. However, when you're listening to these songs, he truly sounds like someone that may have originally cut his teeth on the glam metal that was so popular during the 80s in Los Angeles. A guy can't do anything about the singing voice he was given, of course, but it just sounds like a mighty strange aural mixture at times.

This is fine music, even with all of its odd ingredients. Enjoy it with a quizzical look on your face.
