#253: Trace by Son Volt

November 17, 2015

It’s been twenty years since Son Volt released their debut album Trace, which means it is up for repackaged remastered re-release and reappraisal. Always compared to Wilco thanks to their time together in alt.country pioneering band Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt finds Jay Farrar at his songwriting peak, easily shifting from uptempo rockers to acoustic slow burns with radio friendly production tying it all together. Does it stand the test of time? Is Tim’s love of Son Volt still strong? Has Jason come around to any of it? Tune in to find out.
