Re: The Jason Isbell Thread

So live EP first? That's cool. But hopefully the album isn't coming out later this year.

Re: The Jason Isbell Thread

From the email I got, he implied his new album is coming out this summer and the live EP is for RSD. He was recording over the new year, so that would seem to make sense.

Re: The Jason Isbell Thread

I missed his concert here last summer, and I can't get to Red Rocks for his date this summer either.
Can't wait for his new record, though. huge grin.

Re: The Jason Isbell Thread

I've been listening to the full album stream on NPR. I like it a lot. Starting a road trip to Florida tonight - thinking about changing my route to cut across Alabama instead of Georgia...but either way...I think I'll be playing this non-stop as we venture through the Great Southeast!

Re: The Jason Isbell Thread

Made it about 30 seconds into Zac Brown's "Cover Me Up" before I had to turn it off.

Dude likes covering Isbell. They put Dress Blues (with neutered lyrics) on a studio album recently. But woof, not good.

Good for Jason, though. It's a ton of publicity.

I never cared for his cover of Dress Blues...but also never caught the lyrical change. Is it just the line "To fight somebody's Hollywood war" which became "To give all in some God awful war"?

I HATE when someone takes a song and tweaks it in a way to change the tone of the original...even in a small way. That is a key line in the song: there is a bitterness and a sense of frustration in Isbell's original lyric and to change it really blunts the power of the song.

What I hate more is that this song had a personal connection for Isbell - written about a kid from his hometown who was killed in Iraq and he uses that to create a heartfelt tribute that is sometimes painfully honest.

A very moving article about the young man who inspired Dress Blues.

Yeah, it's just one line but I think it's a big deal. It's the climax of the song. Can't be painfully honest when you make pop music, I guess.

Re: The Jason Isbell Thread

kinda weird that i never really listened to isbell in earnest until very recently - i loved his songs while he was in dbt and only ever gave sirens in the ditch a few spins - i did see him live a few times back then [and again yrs later when he opened for ryan]

but ive been on a steady diet of his albums for the past few weeks - really dig the 400 unit and here we rest records - sirens is pretty good - the other two released under his own name just arent doing much for me - they dont seem very cohesive or something - cant quite put my finger on it but im not responding them in near the same way

got a copy of the nashville sound on the way - based on the two songs ive heard so far [cumberland gap and hope the high road] im pretty excited

Re: The Jason Isbell Thread

Saw Isbell this past Saturday at the ACL venue. I've seen him a hand full of times and have to say, he's at the top of his game right now. The 400unit sounded great, best I have seen them.
