Daniel Young of Salt Lake City wears many hats – singer, songwriter, guitarist, drummer, producer – and he wears them all on this new song on which he also recorded and mastered to analog tape.  ‘Water Table Line‘ is a classic folk-country aching song – weighed down by the cares of the world, and looking for somewhere stable to pause and catch one’s breath.  It may well be the weariest sound you hear all month from the opening lines of “Does it seem you’ve bit off more than you could chew, and you’re trying to find a new place to land” to the desperate appeal for respite “maybe let’s take a little time, take some time and unwind / Enough of all this running around / Try and get your feet on solid ground.

Musically ‘Water Table Line‘ is doubly enriched by the fiddle of Lillie Mae and the weeping pedal steel of Muskrat Jones, making it a balm for those who have just had enough for now.

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?
