Deer Tick Announces Tour “Campaign” Includes Sasquatch Festival, Newport Folk Festival Dates

MP3: Born At Zero (spin)

I am not sure what the words Divine Providence mean but my guess is Deer Tick would be interested in promoting this. So Deer Tick is embarking on a tour modeled after an election campaign. This comes complete with yardsigns that are available here. They will give an unreleased MP3 to fans who post pictures of the yardsigns on the band’s facebook. The MP3 we posted is on Deer Tick’s ep Tim which a limited 200 copy pressing 10 inch will be available at the band’s shows and here.
Also of note is that Deer Tick’s allies, Diamond Rugs which is 2 Deer Tick dudes plus a dude from Black Lips plus a dude from Dead Confederate plus a dude from Six Finger Satallite plus a dude from LOS LOBOS has a new song over on the Rolling Stone website.

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit in Columbus – March 6 (and SXSW)

(Jason is also playing SXSW)

Ex-Drive-By Trucker guitarist Jason Isbell and his band – The 400 Unit – released their self-titled album in mid-February . It’s Isbell’s second post-DBT release but the first where he’s put a name to the guys backing him up. And it’s with good reason that he gives credit where credit is due – the 400 Unit brings a consistency to Isbell’s sound, a consistency that was lacking (a bit) on his 2007 debut, Sirens of the Ditch. Don’t get me wrong, I loved that album and went so far as to call it one of 2007’s most “outstanding country-influenced rock albums” but it sounded exactly like what it was – a culmination of years worth of songs that had been brewing in Isbell’s head.

With less time to write, and more input and influence from his band, Isbell’s latest sounds like the fully realized vision of an accomplished Southern songwriter and contains some of Isbell’s strongest compositions to date (“Sunstroke,” “Good,” “No Choice in the Matter” and “The Last Song I Will Ever Write” are personal favorites).

MP3: Sunstroke

I sent Isbell some questions via his publicist a few weeks ago. Read the interview after the jump.
