JASON ISBELL

Sirens of the Ditch

2007-07-30

Ex-member of county-alt rock outfit The Drive-By Truckers, Jason Isbell releases a very heartfelt debut and has elements of DBT, but don’t expect that grungy sound. It’s in the song writing that makes Isbell’s record favorable for DBT fans. Check out tracks 1 “Brand New Kind Of Actress”, track 4 “Chicago Promenade”, track 7 “Hurricanes and Hand Grenades”, and track 11 “The Devil Is My Running Mate”, which is the best track on the whole album. – Lane Zoerhof
