CONTEST: Son Volt – The Search

Here’s your chance to win a copy of Son Volt’s new cd that is fast climbing the AMA Charts….send in your name to with the subject line: Son Volt Contest. Entry limited to one per day per person. I will announce the lucky winner here next Sunday April 29th. The song on the video (Tear Stained Eye) isn’t on the album – it just happens to be my favorite Son Volt song..

Son Volt returns with ‘The Search’ on Transmit Sound/Legacy, in stores March 6!! In support of the release of The Search I have CDs available for review and giveaway as well as audio streams, and other assets (press release and album art) below.The Search, the intriguing new album from Son Volt, is set for release on March 6 on Transmit Sound/Legacy, and it’s by far the band’s most daring and diverse album yet. The follow-up to 2005’s acclaimed ‘Okemah and the Melody of Riot, ‘The Search is a startlingly powerful and inspiring departure from the band’s alt-country laden records, employing an exceptional variety of sounds, melodies, and arrangements. Laced with Eastern-style electric guitar and Farrar’s signature vocals, the tune fades out to silence only to dive into ‘The Picture,’ a track that features an upbeat Memphis-style horn section combined with stirring lyrics that reflect on the current and future state of things, “when war is profit and profit is war.” There’s the buzzing, Zeppelin-esque guitar of “Action”; the hypnotic, other-worldly riff of “Circadian Rhythm”; the vocal harmonizing of chanteuse Shannon McNally on “Highways and Cigarettes”; and the Big Brother commentary of title track “The Search,” a solid rock song delivered as only Son Volt can.
