Aladdin Theater

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] Jason Isbell joined Drive-by Truckers for a pair of albums in the mid-’00s, quickly made himself a seemingly indispensable creative force in a band already featuring a pair of ace songwriters, then jumped ship (or truck) for solo work once he’d made a name for himself. At first, that may have inspired cynicism, but considering the work he\'s done since on the four studio and two live albums under his own name, it seems that was the right course of action. His newest release, Southeastern, finds the young Alabaman\'s talent maturing even further, to the point where one might imagine that one day the Truckers could be known as \"that band Jason Isbell was in once.\" He\'s retreated even further from the Truckers\' bluster into an album of mostly acoustic textures, with only two songs that could really be called rockers, and midtempo ones at that. But Isbell\'s heart-rending lyrics pack a punch even when the music does not.
