Episode Summary

Son Volt
Son Volt is an American band in the same way that Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen are American artists. All three capture a unique part of America's essence by looking at their environment and their inner selves and translating what they see into song without being flamboyantly nationalistic. Based in St. Louis, Missouri, Son Volt find themselves both in the heart of the Midwest and at the gateway to the West. They don't see a land of unlimited potential and bountiful resources like the pioneers before them, however, but rather a divided nation watching its once great economy slowly crumble. It makes sense that they named their most recent record, from which all four of the featured songs come, American Central Dust.moreless
