Rip Notes

On his new album Comal County Blue, Boland deals with life, politics and the
human experience informed by that Oklahoma tradition and his own personal
experience. In the opening track "Sons and Daughters of Dixie," Boland addresses
the struggles and anger of those who lived through Hurricane Katrina, expressing
defiance against authority, while affirming the strength and ability of the
average person to overcome ("The back shall not be broken of the soul that won't
be killed / If there's one thing a Southern man knows how to do is to rebuild.")

Boland's well-known struggles with alcohol make their way into Comal County Blue
as well. Though many artists evoke Haggard's name when discussing their
influences, few have lived on the edge of destruction like he has, only to come
back from that edge with songs that leave the listener with greater insight into
the soul of those that struggle against their demons. In "Bottle By My Bed,"
Boland reflects on four years of sobriety after coming dangerously close to
drinking himself into an early grave. He chronicles his transformation from a
self-professed liability to a sentient being ("Now I'm going back home / It's
down this path I'm led / And I'm no longer empty like the bottle by my bed").

The first single is the title track, "Comal County Blue." It's a gentle song
that puts the listener in the seat right next to Boland with the window rolled
down. It's like sharing a conversation as he and the listener escape the
occasionally suffocating contentment of small town life to experience all that
the big city has to offer. ("Tonight I'm rolling up north / Back to where I paid
a due /Tonight the answer's Austin / For the Comal County blue").

Though Jason is the primary songwriter and singer, this is no one-man show.
"Outlaw Band," narrates the vision to which Jason Boland and The Stragglers have
always been true: that of self-reliance, determined professionalism and bringing
the best music possible to fans. The song showcases the Stragglers' Noah
Jeffries on searing fiddle and mandolin parts, while the rhythm section of Brad
Rice (drums) and Grant Tracy (bass) provide an unfailing foundation. Roger Ray
(guitar, pedal steel) also lets loose on the dobro, perfectly complementing the
groove that is sure to raise the roof at future Stragglers' shows. The song
captures the musicality at the core of the energy that is Jason Boland and The

The esteem that Jason Boland and the Stragglers' contemporaries hold him in is
evident by their participation in Comal County Blue. Robert Earl Keen duets with
Boland on "The Party's Not Over," reassuring listeners that the party will
always "come back around." "Alright," co-written with Cody Canada of Cross
Canadian Ragweed, is an infectious song with a vocal chorus that soars. Producer
Lloyd Maines (Dixie Chicks, Robert Earl Keen, The Waybacks) gets the best
performance out of the band since Pearl Snaps. The album was tracked live in the
studio, and under his deft touch, the band delivers a musical tour de force that
is at times subtle and at times rollicking. It's that musicianship, along with
Jason's increased maturity as a lyricist that makes Comal County Blue Jason
Boland and the Stragglers' finest effort to date.

While at first glance Jason Boland and the Stragglers' music may seem easy to
stereotype as Texas or Country, intent listening makes it harder to categorize
their music easily, revealing the influence of the land and life that got them
to where they are. Boland knows he can't shy away from questions about how to
classify his music but simply states, "The Chinese don't call it Chinese food,
its just food. I'm just making music." When asked what the record is about,
Boland steams, "It's about drinking, it's about being sober, it's about
replacing vices with vices, it's about divorce, it's about the silenced, its
about the sacrificed souls of Americans, its about Galileo being right! And it's
about working harder than we?e ever worked."'
