REVIEW: RainPace - Easy Labor

California-based band RainPace steps outside the proverbial box with their album Easy Labor. At first listen, one might think they are listening to the sound track of a Broadway play, however these guys hit it hard with lyrics that make you second guess what you just heard with a subtle flare of comedy that is sure to leave you quite entertained.

Easy Labor is full of emotion, fabulous instrumentation and, above all, lyrics that are completely unexpected. Rain Pace has a jazzy feel that’s sure to leave you relaxed. At times some of the songs break into unparalleled harmonies similar to the bridges in the classic rock songs of Queen and Kansas.

Don’t be fooled though, this is an album you have to hear to really get it. As a great album for hanging out by the pool or warming up next to the fire, Easy Labor is sure to surprise and hold your attention without overwhelming.

Probably the most prominent feature this album has to offer is the awesome harmonies. Very rarely do you hear vocal styles that even come close to as moving and pleasing to the ear as Rain Pace has to offer. There is no question that these guys have their own niche market and surely have taken an off the wall and completely original take on their music.

4 out of 5 stars
