"Midnight at the Movies" by Justin Townes Earle

Biography

Once compared to a man who wears many suits, in thirty-two short years Justin Townes Earle has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally. Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, a new found sobriety, being born Steve Earle’s son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This is Earle's fourth release and follows his critically acclaimed 2010 album, Harlem River Blues, which debuted #47 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and led to a Song of the Year award at the 2011 Americana Music Awards.

Produced by Earle alongside longtime collaborator Skylar Wilson, the 10-track album was recorded completely live with no overdubs over a 4-day period at an old converted church recording studio in Asheville, NC. Of the new record, Earle comments, I think that it s the job of the artist to be in transition and constantly learn more. The new record is completely different than my last one, Harlem River Blues. This time I've gone in a Memphis-soul direction.

And that's true enough. While Harlem River was a love letter to his new hometown of NYC, this new album is a gorgeous, sometimes lush sometimes sparse, paeaon to a city that's given so much to the world musically. The sweat, the horns, the soul.....

Review

The son of country-rock renegade Steve Earle has grown into a songwriter to rival his dad. His fourth LP is his strongest yet, a set of love-scarred folk-blues travelogues delivered with exactingly shaky phrasing and an undertow of Stax-Volt horns. 'Down on the Lower East Side' gets New York-jazzy, and 'Won't Be the Last Time' is honky-tonk weepy. Earle's bloodline follows him everywhere, and guides him, too; as he declares in the record's first line: "I hear my father on the radio singing, 'Take me home again.' #37 Best Album of 2012. --Rolling Stone

2012 was a fine year for brass sections, which helped bolster excellent new albums by the Mountain Goats and David Byrne & St. Vincent, among others, but some of the loveliest, most understated rock n roll horn-playing came on this quiet gem, Justin Townes Earle s fifth record in six years and his finest yet. The album s mouthful of a title can t quite decide whether it wants to be cocky or resigned and fatalistic, but these songs definitely tend toward the latter. Indeed, he could ve just stuck with the title s first three words, which become something of an implicit mantra it s in the rueful refrain of Won t Be The Last Time ; it s the counsel he gives to a hard-up friend, vainly hoping for her life to improve, on Unfortunately, Anna ; it s the subtext to Earle s repeatedly declared intentions to be a better man. Nothing s gonna change except love, of course, which can and probably will go sour. The horns, however, help keep things from getting all too forlorn softening the hard edges of his broken-hearted blues, cushioning the blows and lending a warmth and looseness to the occasional up-tempo diversions: reckless rave-up Baby s Got A Bad Idea and the sprightly, soul-soaked Memphis In The Rain as much as the bleary-eyed ballads that make up the bulk of the album. #13 Best Album of 2012. --Magnet

Justin Townes Earle may have been born in Nashville and spent some years wandering around New York City, but Nothing s Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now draws greatly from another southern city: Memphis. Soul, blues and du-wop horns replace a lot of the old time instrumentation of his earlier records, without ever losing the raw, lonely lyricism Earle has become known for. The best songs blend all sides: Won t Be the Last Time, is a spare, aching slow burner driven by steel guitar and Earle s quintessential hard-nailed guitar plucks, and the title track has brass soft enough to carry the solemn weight of lines like when you wake up alone and you still smell my smoke. Nothing s Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now shows an evolving Earle, but one thing is certain: even when he swaps old-timey bass lines for horn sections, his skilful songwriting keeps it s focus, melancholy as that focus may be. #28 Best Album of 2012. --American Songwriter

His voice remains packed with emotion and personality, but it has more range and takes more risks, as he whispers, slurs and moans like a midnight caller…His self-written songs, each as strong as the next, deal with family history, with the way loved ones shade the truth to each other, and with the downhill side of love and friendship. Somehow, through the confessionals and dark stories, a powerful light shines through. --Associated Press

The most effective singer/songwriters strip themselves naked, confess flaws and desires, perhaps ask for forgiveness or remain stubborn. Justin Townes Earle unflinchingly displays all of these behaviors on his superb fourth album...With just 10 tracks, the album yields only a brief glimpse of the singer's troubled soul, yet leaves you wanting more. --USA Today

4.0 out of 5 stars DEAR MUSIC APPRECIATORS April 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Dear Music Appreciators,

The oldest son of the revered "Hardcore Troubadour" seems like the kind of guy who is just as likely to be spotted in the pages of GQ as he is to be walking down your local railroad tracks with a bindle over his shoulder. Wearer of hats and scarves and bowties and vests, Justin Townes Earle is a snappy-dressing free spirit with a history of drugging and drinking who writes and sings Americana style songs infused with country, folk, and blues elements that will put a tear in your beer and a swing in your step. This is Earle's fifth studio album (four LPs and one EP) which may just qualify him for a bit of a Ryan Adams comparison...young, prolific, singer/songwriter with a history of substance abuse and a Bloodshot Records connection derails a string of easy-to-love albums with a darkly confessional down-in-the-dumps record that challenges fans and turns critical expectation on its ear - Ryan Adams put out a record like that called 29. But where Adams' record (his third release of 2005) may have been too much of a long and winding road, Earle's effort clocks in at a respectful 30:23 and contains just enough up-tempo horn and organ soaked Memphis soul moments and old fashioned storytelling sense to keep the whole affair interesting. "Baby's Got A Bad Idea" features a growly rock vocal, punchy horn chart, and rollicking piano, while "Memphis In The Rain" swaggers through the titular city and its "whitewashed buildings and overgrown yards" in search of a "girl without a name." "Down on the Lower Eastside" contains the most artfully understated vocals of the album woven up with jazzy, muted trumpet and soulful organ flourishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album from JTE March 28, 2012
By mattwsc
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is inevitable that the follow up to a successful album will be compared to it, I think that all Justin Townes Earle fans would be satisfied and even welcome Harlem River Blues Part 2, and listening to this record Earle was obviously not willing take the easy way out and for this I thank him.
The sound of this album is different from his previous albums and EP, but not so much as to see no connections at all. The country influence of his previous work is still there, his hard-hitting and emotional lyrics are as present as ever ("Won't Be the Last Time" ranks up in his finest ever), and his distinctive voice and ragged delivery is still here. I will say this album is predominantly slower than Harlem, but this is not a bad thing (the emotion of the slow songs makes up for it) and there are upbeat songs ("Baby's Got a Bad Idea," "Movin' On," "Memphis in the Rain") scattered throughout.
I encourage anyone to pick up the record, but please do not simply compare it to Harlem River Blues, let it stand on its own as a new and great direction that Earle has gone in.

Key songs: "Am I That Lonely Tonight?," "Baby's Got A Bad Idea," "Won't Be The Last Time," "Movin' On"

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely as Good as Harlem River Blues April 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I usually don't do reviews and just read others, but I felt compelled to write one about JTE's latest. I'll admit that I'm probably the not the most objective person in the world since JTE is absolutely one of my favorite artists, but do yourself a favor and buy this album immediately. Harlem River Blues was an amazing discovery for me and is one of my all-time favorite albums. I even went into this album with a preconceived notion that there was no way this album could compare. I'm here to tell you that it does in every way. I was looking forward to this release like no other artists and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest.

The first time I listened to it, I rushed through it and didn't give a true listen. Much like Harlem River Blues, I gravitated to just the title track and didn't realize what pure gold was in the rest of the album. I kept playing it and really took the time to listen to each song. This album is fantastic on so many levels. If you're looking for one single standout track to match "Harlem River Blues," you won't really find it, but what you will find is a truly fantastic album.

As opposed to Harlem River Blues, JTE decides to start off a little slow with "Am I That Lonely Tonight," and this is one that may not impress the hell out of you at first, but you'll remember it and keep coming back to it over and over. I love starting the album over just to hear this song. "Look the Other Way" is hands-down one of the best tracks on the album. It's upbeat and will remind you the most of the title track from "Harlem River Blues." It's a true showcase for JTE's outstanding voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Good as Harlem River Blues March 27, 2012
By Guthrie
Format:MP3 Music
This album is different than all of his previous albums but still sounds very much like A Justin Townes Earle album. It has much more of a soul influence and less country. Harlem River Blues is my favorite album of his but I think this one is right up there with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars All his own March 6, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
JTE is nobody's clone. His music is unique and interesting...very listenable stuff. I don't see him breaking into the pop charts anytime soon, so listen to the samples on Amazon and if the music appeals to you, get the CD.

If you like Steve Earle, definitely listen to his son. Its clear from the lyrics they don't get along, but you can definitely hear his father in his voice.
