Jason Isbell and his band The 400 Unit performed a pair of tracks from their forthcoming album “The Nashville Sound” exclusively for a Kansas City, Mo., radio station in preparation for the album’s June release.

Among the songs performed are “Cumberland Gap” and “If We Were Vampires” two very different tracks that still manage to capture the same amount of raw emotion. “Cumberland Gap” bears similarities to “Hope The High Road” which was the first track released from the record, while “If We Were Vampires” is a more somber tune.

The former Drive By Trucker member broke through with his 2013 release “Southeastern” which we described as “grounded throughout in brittle acoustics and modest, winning melodies.” Isbell’s next effort—the marvelous “Something More Than Free” was equally captivating. We can only assume that his next record will be as carefully crafted as his these past releases.
