Georgia State Line & Patrick Wilson “”What I Know Now” – Listen

Perhaps the most surprising thing about this song by Georgia State Line & Patrick Wilson is that we’re listening to an Australian band.  Of course good music knows no boundaries, but not many capture that outsider Americana sound as well as Georgia State Line (aka Georgia Delves) and Patrick Wilson.  Imagine the likes of Richmond Fontaine with a female lead singer delivering a tale of low expectation and depression.

And if that sounds like The Delines then that’s not so far from the fact either.  But too many comparisons are odious – the real skinny is that ‘What I Know Now‘ is a whoozy pedal steel infused marvel of a song that is worthy of your attention.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
