Jason Isbell, Southeastern
2013 | Label: Southeastern Records / The Orchard

The fourth solo album from former Drive-By Trucker Jason Isbell finds the singer-songwriter-guitarist writing and performing with new clarity, thanks in part to the one-two punch of newfound love (he recently married violinist-singer-songwriter Amanda Shires) and dedicated sobriety. The stunning, raw-boned waltz of opener “Cover Me Up” sets a tone of brazen vulnerability, followed by the balmy love song “Stockholm” (also, interestingly, a waltz), offering listeners assurance that the darkness ahead — brutal, timeless murder… read more »

Jason Isbell Southeastern

It has been a longtime since an album spoke to me so deeply. I think the last album to do this was Greg Browns Poet Games. Like that album this is a dark album written and recorded by singer songwriter at the top of his craft. The recording quality is fantastic and so simple that the sound engineer does not get in the way of an intensely personal eperience that you are able to share eith the artist. This will be an album that I will keep going back to for years to come. The song elephant is like few songs I have experienced

I downloaded this record after hearing an interview / on air show on Outlaw Country on Sirius/XM. I can not seem to stop putting it on the stereo. This is a GREAT album and I will continue to play it even if my teenage son has banned it at home, 'It's depressing dad.' AHH, the optimism of youth. I will stick with Isbell.

bought this cd, which I rarely do, on the strength of 'songs she sang' and 'elephant'. I feel it's a very strong set. saw him in the second of two consecutive sell-outs in my town and, let me tell ya, the guy can play, acoustic or electric. I wish him great success...

geez, i wanted to....

wanted to like this record more than I did. I agree with the previous reviewer that it certainly sounds intelligent and sensitive, and well....a bit boring. I ended up keeping a total of two tracks from the record. perhaps if he had invoked the spirit of a southern crazy horse, (band, that is) the sleepy introspection might have been a bit more biting and forceful. as it is, he sounds like a really nice guy that makes records that appeal mostly to his fellow sensitives. personally, I would like a little meat with the sugar and quiche.

This record blew me away when I first heard it back in July and I still can't get enough of it. Absolutely amazing.

Maybe I'm clairvoyant but isn't there a Townes Van Zandt similarity in this recording? Thats a good thing not a jab at Jason..

Intelligent, sensitive, but not so mellow as to bore you to tears.
