Song of the Day: Jay Farrar “Dent County”

Jay Farrar’s “Dent County” is a song that I have been listening to a lot lately. It is one of the more straightforward songs on the album “Terroir Blues”, which features several tracks of sonic experimentation. This song is just piano, pedal steel, and Farrar’s baritone vocals. The song is haunting and melancholy with a core of reverence – an elegy for Middle America and the strength and dignity of its 20th century inhabitants.
