EDITORS’ NOTES

As illustrated by the quiet, simple devastation of its opener—the sorrowful, hard-living vignette “Alabama Pines”—Jason Isbell is on top of his narrative game on his third album. Here We Rest collects stories of the beat-down and forgotten, like the lovers ravaged by opiates on the swaying country track “Codeine,” or a woman visiting her long-lost dad on the driving “Stopping By.” “Tour of Duty” ends things with an upbeat, folky shuffle, though, as a war vet returns home.
