More Bottle Rockets at A Truer Sound
Wall Street Journal article.
On Son Volt’s latest album, “American Central Dust” (Rounder), we hear evidence of Jay Farrar’s evolution as a composer. Compared with what he wrote for the band Uncle Tupelo’s 1990 debut, “No Depression”—in which his words run together, fail to find a seat on the melody and never let the composition coalesce into a complete statement—the 12 songs on the new disc, Son Volt’s eighth, are minimalism set to music.
There’s a great interview in The Alternate Route magazine with Israel Nash Gripka, who’s album New York Town is one of my favourite releases of the year so far, if you missed it first time around I posted some mp3’s here, the magazine also features Paul Thorn, John Doe and Slaid Cleaves, you can get a look here
