The new full-length from Justin Townes Earle is one of my most anticipated albums of the year. His first two albums The Good Life and Midnight at the Movies have been fantastic, and the third features Jason Isbell on most, if not all, of the album. It's called Harlem River Blues and is due in September on Bloodshot.
Earle co-produced the album himself with Skylar Wilson, and features a fantastic supporting cast: Brian Owings on drums, Paul Niehaus (Calexico) on pedal steel guitar, and Ketch Secor (Old Crow Medicine Show) on harmonica.
