Son Volt - Electro Melodia (INDIES ONLY TAN VINYL)
IT’S A NEW WORLD, THIS IS THE LIFE/THESE ARE THE TIMES
2020 was not quite what Jay Farrar was expecting for the 25th anniversary of Son Volt, the
band he started in 1995 after leaving the seminal group Uncle Tupelo, whose No Depression
album helped define the alt-country and Americana genre. The group had just finished an
Outlaw Country Cruise when the pandemic hit and sent them into their homes on lockdown.
Instead of a triumphant tour marking the illustrious landmark, Farrar was forced indoors by
the pandemic, and his “Reverie” during that time helped define Electro Melodier, Son Volt’s
10th studio album – and third for influential Nashville indie Thirty Tigers.
