Son Volt
“Honky Tonk”
Label: Rounder Records
Reviewed 7/14/13

“Honky Tonk” really only in instrumentation, with twin fiddles and pedal steel figuring in
most of the tracks. Otherwise, the sound is tried and true Son Volt, with Jay Farrar’s languid
vocal stylings.

*= favorite cuts

1 – (3:45) Hearts and Minds* Lilting waltz, pretty song.
2 – (2:07) Brick Walls* Nice honky tonk sound, great pedal steel.
3 – (2:56) Wild Side Slow-paced, softer ballad.
4 – (3:58) Down the Highway Plaintive vocals, mid-tempo, regular SV sound.
5 – (2:06) Bakersfield* Good, up-tempo country shuffle, mentions radio, heartbreak,
and prison cell.
6 – (3:34) Livin’ On Slow, sad tune about lost hope.
7 – (2:50) Tears of Change* Mid-tempo bounce, about nothing lasts forever.
8 – (4:00) Angel of the Blues Slow ballad, just so-so.
9 – (3:18) Seawall* Mid-tempo shuffle about decay through time.
10 – (3:36) Barricades Another just OK song. Slow.
11 – (3:32) Shine On Slow to mid-tempo, another so-so offering.
