Winchester Revival: ‘Burdens Landing’ When it comes to rock bands whose talent spills over, look no further than indie rock band Winchester Revival. With lyrics that rise above the typical fare that most rock bands are guilty of, Winchester Revival delivers a sonic punch with their album Burden’s Landing. Hailing from Oakland, Burden’s Landing is an EP from Winchester Revival that serves up alternative rock that is an ode to 70s Americana. Members David Rosenheim (vocals), Andrew Lund (guitars, backing vocals), Ron Cruz (bass), Kirk Snedeker (drums), and Matt Glick (electronics) have a wealth of experience in previous bands under their belts and the five tracks offered on this EP indicate that their union is one that fans from all of their previous incarnations will appreciate. When melodies, hooks, and beats come together, it can be a beautiful mix, and Winchester Revival doesn’t disappoint. Arguably the standout track, ‘Last Night in Tokyo’ opens the EP with a guitar-heavy melody that is hard to escape, with lyrics that place the listener in the midst of it all. Rosenheim’s vocal abilities shine on ‘Diligence’, with an electronic assist by Glick that layers the track to perfection and dares fans not to get caught up in its sonic afterglow. The closing track, ‘Ice Water’, shows off the lyrical mastery of the band, and is just as loud and rambunctious as one would expect from an alternative rock band. All in all, Burden’s Landing does exactly what it is meant to do: whet the appetites of fans, win over new ones, and leave them all clamoring for more. With this EP, Winchester Revival has accomplished all of this and then some.
