I mean talking to people about the work we're doing and, you know, taking me on tour for a good few tours I've always had a great time with him um he's really fun Jason I wonder if you could talk for a minute about the new Amanda shires cd pretty good stuff oh yeah hot and let's see let's see you know I love that record I loved playing on that record because I got to be a guitar player and I didn't know the songs. they were there, I knew they were solid and I also knew they weren't mine so I really didn't have to worry too much about it. song and what one day we had a pretty intense conversation because because I was asking him if he wanted something that was a little Frizzle-esque because the production or doing was similar to Tom Waits or something so well I don't want him to play something on that in school Frizzle playing the guitar said oh god no no not because of the song what i want i went outside i stood back for a minute thinking about it and i realized she thought i meant Lefty Frizzell and i'm in a big field.

jason isbell interviewed live on wncw...

I met Bill Frisell yeah I'm back so wait a minute wait a minute wait but yeah that was really fun for me just playing guitar and I love these songs. and they look good they know they're actually the gist of those songs which I think are very literate and they know it unfolds the meanings the more you listen to it well it's good the little anecdote about uh Bill Frisell and Lefty Frizzell is interesting because it really it's a change for you that you used to be like lefty frizzell so that's right and this is a totally different sound for you it is and sounds like it to me at least production wise yeah i think that's just because of the producer I finally found someone who understands like I don't know better just not talk yeah and then when I do it always comes out so weird well then you can get a little more peanut butter and jelly and less like a cat. walking on a roof, you know, I thought this record had a very bright pop sound to it, yeah, okay, thanks mm-hmm, thanks. of you were in the top 100 this year top 100 well thank you all for voting for us yeah um what are you guys reading these days Jason?
jason isbell interviewed live on wncw
You are a big fan of books, right? just finished Infinite Jest I just read the The Gathering maze yeah well that's kind of heavy I'm going to David Foster Wallace Infinite Jest it was heavy but I loved it I really loved it I laughed out loud and a lot um I got tired of having to walk past to another until the endnotes and stuff, yes, but I'm going to the footnotes, but yes, it was really good, there is a really good book, I like it a lot. Wow, I was going to find some kind of link between what you're reading in your composition, but that's a weird mistake, that's a weird book, it's um, yeah I really know how to talk about it.
jason isbell interviewed live on wncw
I love the fact that he doesn't give you all the details, but he knows what took me so long to read. I was reading for three months and my favorite. it was when he dropped it and in your face that he fell asleep. I'm sure he was your favorite face. yeah it took a while but when i got to the end you know for people who read that book when it cuts off at the end you're supposed to know what's next i think and if you look back on the first 20 pages of the book, you'll go oh ok you know that well i see how this ended but there's a gap between the loop you know the book loops itself and there's a gap missing right after the last page where if you don't remember what What you read at the beginning of the book is going to baffle you, so I had to go back and read the first 20 pages again.
I've never had to do that before with a book, it made me feel a bit silly, so I guess he did what he wanted to do. you had to leave more gaps or more spaces to do it you just have to pick the right details man that's the hard part that's the hard part because you can you can inundate people with stuff that doesn't advance the story very easily or you can be broad, You know, and some people love that you know that songs that have big, sweeping lyrics are great to play in the background when you're at a Super Bowl party or grilling out or something, but for me if I'm going to listen to one song.
I want something that gives me the right details where I can feel like I'm in a certain place and time and you know the Rolling Stones always did that and they did it was more than just lyrics but but but great great lyricist you know you listen to Randy Newman and I You know, you really get the feeling that there's a character speaking to you at some point that isn't Alabama in the '90s or when I first started hearing that stuff, you know guys, it sounds wonderful, congratulations on the record, so much to you as for Jason.
Southeast won all the awards you can win I think and well not all the awards you can win but all the good ones I don't think I'm going to get the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award this year because you don't write children's songs I won't take That's so that two people can read those awards well and the children's songs are easier, I tell you the truth, they don't sell. I have songs with me, but in my experience, children, the best songs for children are the best songs for adults, it's true, you know? the kids love the beatles you gotta read a gun right and bob marley that's what he scott joplin yes there are reasons why the things that move you when you're that size will move you later yes and they have better critics in some respects but yeah it's certainly more honest i don't understand the word two words for bennie and the jets until recently you know no all my life i thought it was something else but you knew the song yes you loved the song you have a mohair torez ooh yes no I get it in a magazine I like your
