Brand new clip, “Alabama Pines,”
one of the key tracks on Isbell’s latest record.
By Fred Mills
We’ll come right out and admit it: here at BLURT we consider
Jason Isbell one of our patron saints. He has yet to put out a bad record, and
it seems like every time he steps on stage, either solo or with his band The 400
Unit, magic happens. So we’re dead chuffed to bring you his new video, for the
song “Alabama Pines” off his latest album Here
We Rest (Lightning Rod Records).
It’s a sleek, country-flavored, deceptively upbeat
toe-tapper of a tune that contrasts with its moodier, contemplative lyrical
thrust; the images convey a range of emotions that’ll be familiar to fellow
musicians and road warriors alike (and pay attention to the little girl).

Isbell and The 400 Unit will be on tour from now until Nov. 13, plus selected additional dates in Nov. and Dec. Check the itinerary at his official website.
