This gorgeous sepia-toned piece of Americana is the opener to Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit’s latest release Here We Rest. Entitled “Alabama Pines”, its strength lies in its universality, he may be talking about his home state, but the longing for things past and where you call home touches everyone. Blessed with an unassuming, but mellifluous voice, Isbell drives this narrative home with soaring vocals and intimately placed fiddle and guitar parts, a song that is perfect for those colder summer and early autumn nights, where its truly people and thoughts that keep you warm.
