Feels like driving ’round

Photography by Tony Ryan

Over a decade ago, I would drive
around in my car to Uncle Tupelo.
Though initially bummed at their
split, we saw two amazing bands.
Wilco only grew and evolved, but
Son Volt, though with the stronger
debut, seemed to get stuck on repeat
with each album. Same drone…

Too much.

So The Search leaks. With half a heart
I give it a spin… with each song, my ears
perk a little more. Farrar? Is that you?

Thank god! Back in strong form, but
moving Son Volt forward, finally.


He sets it all off right with this little beauty.

Go show Farrar and the boys some
love here, here, and of course, here.
