Craig Finn discusses new song: "Jackson."

When I heard that Craig Finn, front man of The Hold Steady, was releasing a solo record, I grew worried. The group's most recent album was disappointing to a certain extent, and solo records usually have an empty feel when compared to their full-band counterparts. Consider my cynicism washed away with this great track, highlighted by The A.V. Club, which contains all the power of a great Hold Steady song.

Craig Finn discusses and performs "Jackson"


  1. my cynicism is still in place and I think this record is going to be dog meat.

  2. Even if it sucks, there will probably be a Hold Steady record next year as well--a chance to redeem :-)
