[FRETTED FOLKIE] Missouri-based Jay Farrar isn’t an institution per se, but his two most prominent alt-country outfits speak highly of a guy who creates music about the everyday man for the everyday man. Despite the supposed turmoil between them, his brief stint alongside Jeff Tweedy in Uncle Tupelo is remembered fondly; his work with Son Volt a little less so. Nonetheless, the two-step rhythms and searing pedal steel of Son Volt’s latest LP, Honkey Tonk, proves Farrar still has "it"—it's just buried beneath monotone musings on whisky and windfall that owe much to legends like Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams. He’s also once again touring as a duo with ace multi-instrumentalist Gary Hunt, so expect more than a one-man act.
