The third album from ex-Drive by Trucker Jason Isbell and his second with the 400 unit, the writing and recording of Here We Rest followed a period of recuperation in his home state of Alabama. Indeed, the album's title is the old state motto, before they changed it a century ago to something fancy and Latin.

Much of the material on the record reflects southern life, some of it peculiar to the region ('Alabama Pines'), but many of the songs touch universal themes - the economy, marital strife, and war, though seen through a southern perspective. The best songs here, the fore-mentioned 'Alabama Pines', the loping 'Codeine' and the gentle 'Daisy Mae' all demonstrate a warmth, intimacy and authenticity that can't help but draw the listener in.
