New Son Volt – Down To The Wire

Son Volt 2009

MP3: Son Volt – “Down To The Wire “ from American Central Dust, due July 7 on Rounder.

No, it’s not the Buffalo Springfield outtake, although I can totally hear Jay Farrar singing that. Did Uncle Tupelo used to cover that? This one is an original that sounds like it would’ve fit nicely on 2007’s underappreciated The Search. It features tremelo guitars and swinging drums, and actually sounds kinda fun. And check out that smiley promo picture: could Son Volt have become…happy? (Probably not.)

Son Volt: iTunes, Amazon, Insound, wiki, MySpace, web.

  1. heard an advance of the new son volt, american central dust. actually like it as much, if not more than the search. definitely worth a few listens. it’s going to fit in very well with my summer play list.
