Rusty Reid is anything but rusty, gifted with his experience, he really knows how to churn out excellent verses. Like his latest release Corner Of My Mind, a soulful and nostalgic track. He, so naturally, brings in the 1970’s vibe into his alternative rock along with his country sensibilities with every track he writes. He perfectly captures the introspective and heartfelt tone of classic folk rock while incorporating a modern and unique sensibility.
The song begins with a gentle guitar and drum combo. It pushes you off into a lazy river ride of his wistful world. His voice is reminiscent of a Beatles texture that adds to the many types of nostalgia encapsulated within this song. “The minutes ticking round the clock. The chimes will soon start chiming. In everything in this old world. The trick is in the timing” he’s clearly speaking of a lost love, a topic so widely relatable, that’s bound to grab your attention hook, line and sinker. He shows off his storytelling abilities in this number. You can imagine the lights dim in the bar as he sings the song while you settle in with your memories as you hear the song.
Modern love, what started off as a successful news paper column made its way onto the screen and took the world by surprise. Episode one of season 2 was a favorite. The episode deals with lost love but not by choice. It deals with a woman who’s only connection to her late husband is his car. It doesn’t take away from the fact that she loves her new partner deeply while missing her late husband. “Corner of My Mind” would fit in beautifully into this episode, as it is similar in spirit.
