I hadn't paid a lot of attention before, but this is good.

I have heard various clips from Justin Townes Earle, and have generally liked him, but I think I'm sold after hearing this one. This might renew my faith in Bloodshot Records too, as I haven't really gotten into their new stuff lately. Hopefully it keeps them afloat for a good bit longer too, especially with small labels folding all over the place. Also, it's amazing to me that this video already has 86,000 plays after only about 5 days. Hope you like it.

If you need to hear more, there's a number of places to find more of his music: session (5 songs)

Daytrotter (6 songs)

Bloodshot Records (3 songs)

Look around the interwebs and I'm sure you'll find more, but seriously, just buy his records. This guy is good.

And for those of you who hadn't figured it out, yes, that is Amanda Shires on the cover of Justin's The Good Life LP.

He did a pretty good interview/performance with Seattle's KEXP during SXSW this year:
