Release Day Praise for Justin Townes Earle's new Album


September 14th, 2010 by Rami

Today's a big day 'round here, yessir. Justin released his new album Harlem River Blues today and the word is already rolling out: It rules!

From eMusic: "Earle swings for the fences on his latest album and delivers his finest collection yet."

From Yahoo!: "...capitalize on the promise Earle showed on his previous releases and push him to a new level...[he] shows an emotional depth and subtlety that makes him a unique artist."

From iTunes: "HRB delivers in spades what his two previous offerings hinted at...the songwriter drops 11 weighty originals steeped in American musical traditions yet bearing his own inimitable lyric and stylistic signature. Earle proves that he is a force to be reckoned with, in these grooves he embodies the history, mystery, and promise of American roots music."

From Maverick (UK): "Justin Townes Earle is Justin Townes Earle, so any comparison with other Americana singer-songwriters, old or young is futile. This album has a timeless grace to it and is a massive leap forward."

Loads more is on the way, but we just wanted to get you a little taste...
