LAID BACK LIFE
Son Volt returns with American Central Dust, a plaintive 12-song collection that recalls the melodic succinctness of the band’s debut album Trace. After the musical experimentation of 2007’s The Search, American Central Dust, the band’s first album on Rounder, refines the band’s robust sound. Fiddle, pedal steel, lap steel and sparkling piano add an atmospheric nuance to Son Volt’s Americana inspired rock, surrounding band leader Jay Farrar’s stream of consciousness lyrical imagery.
The Good Stuff 4U
I've been following Jay since 1989 back before Uncle Tupelo released their first record. And he's been a favorite songwriter of mine since then. Not only a great songwriter, but also an amazing, amazingly honest voice. Thank God he still has a sympathetic band with him. Truly one of the modern greats!
The Good Stuff: VI
I've been a fan since before Uncle Tupelo ever even had an album out. Halloween, 1989 to be exact... I love Jay. And I love this band. Listen and learn about what songs are for.
