Here’s “Yellow Eyes,” the first single off Rayland Baxter’s new record. That last name might ring a bell, and for good reason: his father, Bucky Baxter, has performed standout turns on guitar with the likes of Bob Dylan (Time Out of Mind, Unplugged) and Ryan Adams (fan favorite “Dear Chicago”) to name a few. His dad’s a fine side man, for sure, but that’s just a side note to him backing up Rayland in the lead role for this set. Despite the cut’s bittersweet subject matter, a midtempo groove, hits of twang lead guitar, and a sunny melody lend it a more summertime, back porch feel. Baxter sums up those opposing vibes quite well on the bridge: “All in all it’s a beautiful day.” Even with the shades drawn, humming this tune certainly lets a little more light into the room. Imaginary Man comes out on August 14th.
