Pick: Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit

July 8
Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit
Zoo Bar, 136 North 14th St., Lincoln
6 p.m., $18 in advance/$20 day-of-show, zoobar.com

Jason Isbell first made his mark contributing songs and guitar work as a member of the Drive-By Truckers over the course of three albums, starting with 2003's Decoration Day. While in the band, Isbell's songs quickly stood tall. Then after three albums, he exited the band and struck out alone. Now the shadows of past associations have dissipated as Isbell and the 400 Unit have grown into their own sound. While Isbell will never shake his distinctive sound, elements of soul music, soft rock and 70s classic rock have helped him evolve his country rock songs. 2011's Here We Rest may be Isbell's strongest batch of songs, jumping among different tendrils of roots music without losing his sense of self.
