Son Volt: American Central Dust

Son Volt: American Central Dust
Title: American Central Dust
Label: Rounder / Umgd

Now back with his third Son Volt album of the decade, Jay Farrar has delivered what may be his finest work yet, American Central Dust. The new album exhilaratingly carries on the tradition of the Byrds, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Little Feat circa Sailin Shoes, the Rolling Stones of Exile on Main Street and early R.E.M., with standouts like the exceptional Down to the Wire, Dynamite and No Turning Back. An epic lament for the heartland, American Central Dust is populated with readily recognizable characters, the most hopeful of them searching for love against a backdrop of rusted road signs and abandoned factories. Rarely does a musical work so powerfully capture the zeitgeist of it's historical moment while also honoring the traditions of rock & roll with such rawboned grace.
