“America’s Son,” one of the latest tracks from Dallas indie folk-pop quintet Air Review, begins with a tinkling, high-pitched beat that is gradually built up with piano, banjo plucking and the soft, Sufjan-y voice of Douglas Hale. The very patriotic lyrics make us long for summer and the Fourth Of July, which is a bit depressing in these freezing January temperatures.
