Jason Wilber’s new record, Reaction Time, plays like a solitary tour bus rolling steadfastly through the countryside under mysterious skies.
It’s the sound of long, hushed hours spent scribbling in notebooks, dreaming up gorgeously mournful melodies and cascading harmonies set against jangling guitars, the searching songs underpinned by a persistent longing. Which all makes perfect sense. Wilber has spent the better part of the last 20 years gazing out at the world through the windows of planes, buses, cars and trains while on tour with country/folk icon John Prine.
Unabashed honesty is a key ingredient on Reaction Time. Bleeding through on the title track and songs like “Jealousy and Envy,” “Shame On You” and “Teenage Idol” is an aching, sad-eyed and lonesome vulnerability. Blankets of wistful pedal steel belie a bittersweet and yearning vision of Americana. This is music for seekers—fellow travelers deeply committed to their own personal journeys, whether they succeed or fail. “I will be proud to meet you / On the field in defeat / Wherever fortune carries me / I will rise to meet my destiny,” Wilber croons, channeling Desire-era Dylan on “When These Good Old Days Are Gone.”
