Review: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s ‘Live From the Ryman’

Review: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s ‘Live From the Ryman’
These recordings from Isbell’s recent run at country music’s Mother Church add up to a kind of live greatest-hits, a collection wrought from exacting attention to writing craft and the sort of soul-searching that couldn’t have always been comfortable.

Sure, it’d be nice to have included “Decoration Day,” his signature song for Drive-By Truckers, about revenge and the intractability of inherited hate, a topic that certainly has plenty of current resonance. Otherwise, these are Isbell’s most potent songs to date, to a one, including the cancer narrative “Elephant,

Review: Dominic Fike’s Intriguing Major-Label Debut, ‘Don’t Forget About Me’

The rumors suggested that the bidding war for singer Dominic Fike was not like the others: Usually the major labels throw piles of cash at rappers, but Fike’s tracks are guitar-based, and believe it or not, could only be described as rock music. And while labels typically start to hurl their money after an act has already proven his or her ability to amass streams, the 22-year-old Fike didn’t have a viral hit.

Review: Jessie Reyez’s Swaggering, Shape-Shifting ‘Being Human In Public’
Canadian-Colombian singer Jessie Reyez broke through in 2016 with the spare breakup ballad “Figures,” a song that showed off her wide vocal range and deeply emotional delivery; its verses showcased her caustic yowl, shape-shifting into a wounded, yet airborne “you-ou-ou-ouuu” on the chorus. Her second Ep, which collects singles she’s released over the course of this year, further stakes out her musical range, with her singular voice and smoldering passion tying together delicate balladry, boastful trap-pop and sorrowful synth malaise.

Reyez’ swagger is matter-of-fact, as the opening of “Fuck Being Friends,
