Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit: “Cast Iron Skillet” – words of wisdom

We’re trusting that you’ve heard of Jason Isbell.   This is the third single from the new album ‘Weathervanes‘ which is out June 9 via Southeastern Records/Thirty Tigers.  ‘Cast Iron Skillet‘ shares wisdom and life lessons  from the mundane to the deeply insightful. Jason Isbell is southern in accent, and family tree, and in musical ancestors, but he uses his art to tear down the worst of the south and try to build a new, better, more loving region in its place. Isbell breaks open the myths and legends he learned, from the small and insignificant to the large and deadly – and reflects on how the idea of the past is very rarely accurate.  “If we romanticize the past, we can’t really learn from it,” says Isbell.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
