Anacostia (Exclusive, Single)

Anacostia by Son Volt
Released: Sep 2005
Label: Transmit Sound/Legacy
Armed with only a piano and Jay Farrar's demure drawl, this sparse ballad may sound like Son Volt's daintiest ditty. But the lyrics prove that this is the most politically powerful song they have ever recorded. Farrar strongly opines that the only people winning the war in Iraq are those profiting from the defense industry.
Eric Shea
