David McClister
Before “alt-country” became the provenance of pop-star ensembles like Mumford & Sons and even the qualifier “alt” just seemed sketchy, cosmic cowboy Jay Farrar was setting the twangy, melancholic template with his Son Volt. Though still indelibly associated with his first band, country-punk godfathers Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt has been going for far longer – since 1995, in fact – and 10 albums in, Farrar’s work speaks for itself. Ragged glory all the way.
