Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

 
Why do Jason’s songs strike us so deeply? What makes this music of the soul?
 
The answer has to do with Jason’s authenticity, his intellect, his rootedness in both tradition as well as modernity.
 
Simply put, Jason has a gift for taking big, messy human experiences and compressing them into badass little combustible packages made of rhythm, melody and madly efficient language. The songs are full of little hooks – it could be a guitar line that catches one listener, or a quick lyric that strikes to the heart of another — and an act of transference takes place. The stories Jason tells become our own.
 
The music is coming not from Jason and the band, but from within us.
 
This means there’s nothing quite like a 400 Unit show. Not just because the band smokes, but also because Isbell’s fans are among music’s most ardent. Which gives rise to a rock ’n’ roll show that feels like fellowship.
