“Revolution,” the opening cut on East coast singer/songwriter Emily Angell's debut EP, The Upset, sails along on a laid-back, Edie Brickell-inspired guitar groove, allowing room for Angell's honest yet hopeful lyrics and cool, clear alto to rise above the comfy, urban folk foundation. From there, Angellalternates between that style and soft, stark, fingerpicked balladry, while tossing a jazzy, midtempo cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” in for good measure, combining the conversational innocence ofTaylor Swift with the slow-burn defiance of Alanis Morissette, resulting in a collection of songs that feel both wild-eyed and bruised.
