Prick Tunes: Justin Townes Earle "Look the Other Way"
Typically, I try to space out entries from the same artist, but on Saturday an interview with Justin Townes Earle was put up on the Wall Street Journal site. If there were any question as to whether I was a fan of what the younger Earle is up to, there should be no more. There may not be an artist out there for whom news of an upcoming release gets me as giddy as Mister Earle.
As for the interview, Jim Fusilli asks the questions; JTE provides the answers. Mentions of Springsteen and Willie occur. Bits of new songs bookend the conversation. Subject matter veers from process to his checkered past with his father. Good stuff all around.
Here is the album cut of the title track from Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now:
And while I've just posted this song within the past two weeks, here is a full-band performance of "Look the Other Way" on Letterman.
It's entirely possible that I'll return to this album in the near future, possibly with an attempt at a review/reflection on the album. This I cannot/will not promise, however.
