New Jason Isbell – “Good”

A couple weeks ago we traversed Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s “Seven-Mile Island” to hear the story of “a failed father, a birthing mother, [and] an island on which banished Native Americans congregated, a place where Jason and his dad used to go to collect arrowheads.” This time Isbell’s cutting to the chase and letting us know why he has a problem being “Good.” For starters, his conscious has turned into petrified wood. We also have the album art for Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit. There’s something Strawberry Jam about its color palette.
