A Surprising Gem
Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit shine on Here We Rest. The whole album is very listenable, but two songs stand out for me - Codeine, which contains the lyrics: "You should come home tonight, but you won't; I wish we knew how to fight, but we don't", and Never Could Believe: "There weren't no truth in a word that little girl said; The only time she didn't lie to me was rolling in a big ol' bed." Isbell seems to have found a way to write Southern songs without being overt, but they still hold a truths for all of the country. The album blends acoustic and electric elements in a manner that few musicians are capable of these days.
