Singer-songwriter JT Hodges’ song “Hunt You Down” may have one of the best lines in country music this year. It’s the perfect hook. It captures a bucket of feelings in a just few words and makes you think, “Wow, I wish I had said that,” which is exactly how you make a hit. “She said ‘look me up when you get back to town.’ ‘Look you up?’ I said, ‘Hell, I’m going to hunt you down.'”
On the even of the release of Circuital, My Morning Jacket‘s brand-new album, we were able to ask leader singer and songwriter Jim James a few questions about his latest creation, the band’s process for writing and recording, his affection for the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, vinyl, playing live, and how he feels about giving away songs for free.
It’s been a long seven years since Alison Krauss released an album with her longtime band Union Station. Not that she and her bandmates haven’t been busy: Dan Tyminski, Jerry Douglas, Barry Bales, and Ron Block all released solo albums, and of course Krauss herself teamed up with Robert Plant on the GRAMMY-winning 2007 album Raising Sand–a rootsy collection that took both artists in exciting new directions.
Now Krauss and Union Station are back in business together with Paper Airplane. The 11 songs here touch down on familiar territory: modern country with a strong bluegrass backbone, fronted by knockout picking and Krauss’s gentle, sweet voice.
“Paper Airplane” is the lead track from the album of the same name; get a free MP3 download below.

Nice name, James Pants! There’s something about the word “pants” that’s just a little bit funny. The same is true with James Pants’ music.

Check out some new tracks from his forthcoming self-titled release (May 3rd), plus a freakish hip-hop remix of “Seven” from Odd Future‘s Tyler the Creator‘s Bastard album.
