I saw Jason Isbell open for Todd Snider at the Fitzgerald this past summer. He was awesome. Just him and his guitar.
He used to be one of the three singer/songwriters in Drive-By Truckers and co-wrote two of their best albums (Dirty South, Decoration Day). DBT definitely misses him.
He was basically kicked out of the band due to his alcohol issues and the fact he was getting divorced from the bass player. This album was recorded after he had gone through rehab and many of the songs tell stories that could have been heard there.
There is one bad word in the song but it does fit the story.
From the Ben Affleck hosted SNL earlier this year, so the language is OK. Once again, Kanye puts out one of my favorite albums of the year.

Its not often that I catch a band very early in their career and stuck with them for years and years. A lot of bands break up! I first heard this band way back in 2004 when I was instantly hooked on the song 'A Million Ways to Sing the Blues'.
Although I was disappointed in their last album, I thought 'This Disorder' was a gem.
If you haven't jumped on the Black Joe Lewis bandwagon yet, there is plenty of room. One of my favorite newer artists.
Depending what day it is, this is either my favorite or second favorite song from their latest album called Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. I thought this had had a chance to be a pretty big 'hit' song, but it hasnt. yet.
I've adored The Kinks for about 10 years now. Listening to 'classic rock' pretty much my whole life, I knew them for 'Lola' and a bunch of Van Halen cover songs. This simple song, used in a HP printer commercial, piqued my interest in the band and my music listening history can literally be divided into 'Before Kinks' and 'After Kinks'.
Unfortunately, there are not many quality clips from my favorite Kinks era, which is the mid 70s 'Rock Opera' period. So this will do.
Im pretty sure I was introduced to this band by someone on this site, but I cant be 100 percent sure. This is one of my favorites.
'Hi everybody. We're Archie Bell & the Drells. From Houston Texas.' Well nice to meet you!
There is nothing special to this song. But, it makes me want to dance. Hopefully you boogie in you chair.
I was planning on having a 'Theme Week' but I couldnt decide on a theme so its going to be random songs I've liked.
I discovered this artist when Amazon was giving this song away for free. i was instantly hooks because saxophone and guitars are right in my wheelhouse. Enjoy. ~ dw
