“I’ve been waitin’ for something good to come my way,” sings countrified newcomer Nikki Lane on “Gone, Gone, Gone” — a sentiment that’s been around as long as American music. And what better time to bring back that down-on-your-luck style than now? Lane, equal parts Neko Case and Loretta Lynn, leads the way with a sultry, Southern-accented vocal performance over anchored bass, clip-clop drums and just the right amount of slide guitar. No, it’s not contemporary country, but more like something from a past era we’re living through over and over again. Lane’s debut LP, Walk Of Shame, is out September 27 via IAMSOUND and an EP with this track is available now”.
