Lane Change - Rise

.
Rise is a four-song EP that opens with the big Southern rock sound of "The Rich Get Richer," a cut that fans of the Black Crowes will be very comfortable with. Buzzing guitars rule on "Club 27" where lead singer Myles Vann and bass player Lizzie Shafer sing about the so-called "27 Club" which refers to musicians who died at the age of 27 and counts Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Amy Winehouse, Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones and blues man Robert Johnson among its "members." Once again a good blast of Southern-leaning rock 'n' roll, the song, which doesn't mention anyone by name, takes on a bit of an ominous vibe by issuing an invitation to "come on in" to the place "between the sun and moon." Guitarist Jake Galambos picks some Lynyrd Skynyrd-style riffs at the beginning of "Floodwater" and after a few minutes of good rocking and the irresistible chorus of "floodwater risin'!" the song ends with a vocal fade-out that makes it seem like indeed everything is slowly disappearing downstream. Closing track "We Won't Back Down" is a bit of a departure stylistically from the rest of the EP as Vann and Shafer harmonize or alternate lines for most of the song; Shafer and drummer Cameron Holladay also veer the rhythm off into reggae territory for parts of the song. Rise is a very good taste of what Lane Change can do and it accomplishes exactly what an EP is supposed to --- leave the listener wanting more. Get your copy here
