Son Volt’s New Album Review in Paste Magazine

Union - Paste Magazine

“Indeed, Farrar appears more intent than ever to get his points across. Billed as a reaction to the travails and turmoil brought on by today’s political climate, Union makes no attempt to deny the irony of its title. With his ragged vocals front and center, Farrar and his band’s latest line-up purvey a somber sound that’s occasionally mournful yet still assured and certain. The sentiments are unmistakable; ’99 percent, it’s a trickle down world… stuck in cement,’ Farrar declares on the sullen and sobering ‘The 99.'” –Lee Zimmerman, Paste Magazine
