Rusty Reid gives you that hint of old school Americana infused with Laurel Canyon musicians. It is a very specific breed of music, something that comes naturally-reflecting through instruments and the tangential speak in prose. Not many have been able to recreate that time, but this artist revels in it. This is the latest single, Our Love’s With You.
Just the arrangement and transitions are worth fawning over. Rusty Reid composes something so lucid and transcendental-it captures the moment. It is this explored feeling of love, but in the ways that ache your memory. From descriptive moments as well as layered instrumentals-the song brings it all together in this wondrous concoction. The play between the strings and piano is amazing, breathtaking to listen to. From Neil Young and CSNY, you can hear the warm touch of this music becoming an essential embed in Rusty’s music. It is a time capsule, truly, bringing the best of some incredible musicians and their essence. Rusty Reid has a distinct voice in the indie music community, something you can imbibe and enjoy through his current composition. From his single in 2020 titled American Villain, his verbose music and adept themes are really worth diving into.
His latest album Bayou Line is something you can enjoy during any time of the day. It is a springboard back in time, along with references of a contemporary world. I’d love this in the movie Beautiful Boy (2018). The rich imagery and meaningful sequences would really harbour a single like this. Listen to Rusty with his single and follow him for more!
