Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit

Hailing from Alabama, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit will bring their unique, critically acclaimed sound to MPMF09. Described as "tough, hard, passionate, unflinching songs, unrepentant in their sense of place and direct in their stubborn Southernness", Jason Isbell is out supporting his second, self-titled release: "Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit".

SPIN Magazine (4 stars): "...Multiple tales of warm, lonely barrooms and the warm, lonely relationships they breed uncover new truths while traversing well-trod emotional terrain.

Rolling Stone: "...not to be missed."
