July 23, 1997 | JOHN ROOS, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
Jay Farrar just recently turned 30. But you'd swear the singer-songwriter-guitarist was an old-timer when you listen to his band, Son Volt.

Doing what comes naturally, the quartet creates an intoxicating, haunting weariness that swirls around listeners like a cloud of dust. Acoustic instruments foster a mood tinged with bittersweet melancholy.

Jay Farrar--singer, guitarist and principal songwriter for Son Volt--is adroit at capturing the curious allure of the decaying landscape.
