A slow dance for drunkards
I liked “When I Drink About You” before I even pressed play, but I’m a sucker for puns. Luckily, the song has plenty more to offer besides a clever name. Minnesota native Tim Fast’s band consists of steel guitar, slide guitar, violin, stand-up bass, and possibly cello (not sure about that one), and the group blends perfectly in a delightful fusion of lonesome country and melancholy lounge music. Fast's voice is light and tender, with just the perfect amount of drawl. As it says on his website, "Tim Fast could be a character in one of the gems-of-a-song he writes and sings. He’s a dust-covered man who has traveled the roads in search of whatever song is over the next rise." This song is guaranteed to make you feel a little twinge of nostalgia for the good ol' days.
"When I Drink About You" will be stuck in my head because A catchy, nostalgic melody
The most impressive instrumental/vocal performance in this recording is All of them, together.
