Listing Detail Tabs

With Terroir Blues, Jay Farrar recycles some of the adventurous strategies he used on his 2001 solo debut, Sebastopol, and the follow-up EP, ThirdShiftGrottoSlack. At the same time the former Son Volt member returns to a more conventional band and song oriented approach. The result is a disc that's complex and rewarding yet also feels familiar. Atop mostly low-key acoustic arrangements that emphasise piano and steel guitar, Farrar's usual densely written lyrics grapple with the impermanence of life ("Dent County"), love ("Hanging on to You") and even civilisation itself ("Cahokian"). Terroir Blues is also Farrar's first self-released album (Act/Resist Records), a fact that affords him a freedom reflected in the generous tracklist and experimentation. The disc boasts 23 tracks, including six noise-snippets, two instrumental tunes and reprises of four songs.
