Justin Townes Earle: Harlem River Blues
Buy! - (Bloodshot)
While last year’s impressive Midnight At The Movies was a huge leap beyond his raw but engaging 2008 debut The Good Life, Justin Townes Earle’s third full-length sounds like his most cohesive and consistent album to date, masterfully blending Woody Guthrie troubadour folk, reflective indie-pop, rockabilly, soul, ‘60s folk-rock and more into well-crafted songs rooted in but not enslaved to various folk traditions. The stellar musical accompaniment includes former Drive-By Trucker Jason Isbell on guitar for nine of the album’s 11 songs, but it’s JTE’s continued artistic growth that impresses most. 8/24/2010 - Don Yates
