ALBUM REVIEW: "There Goes the Heart" 

River Lynch

"There Goes the Heart"

Self-released

riverlynch.com

Here's another short and sweet blast of Rochester rock 'n' roll. I'm simply getting bombarded by EPs, like this soundtrack to an evening with your arms around your sweet one.

On "There Goes The Heart," River Lynch balances lyrical weight with instrumental dexterity and flight. The music, with or without the words, paints its audience and its needs vividly. That's right, Lynch is singing to you. There are myriad influences rearing their heads in the mix, like The Drive-By Truckers, The Bottle Rockets, and The Beat Farmers — bands who all sling the honky-tonk unapologetically.

Lynch and his band harness the urge to horse it into the boat with a thick, juicy, and appropriate guitar attack, and leaves room for the songs to do what they do. This record is rockin' with heart and soul and just the right amount of grease. — BY FRANK DE BLASE
