giant sand - Blurry Blue Mountain
Howe Gelb's pioneering alt. country band Giant Sand returns with a brand new album, twenty-five years on from their 1985 debut album, Valley Of Rain. Of the new record, Gelb says: "These recordings were done in the space between the waking world and the sleeping one. There exists a point there with a broad landscape that has seldom been loitered in. As with every previous album, none of this was planned. Every record has its own atmosphere. For me they are always a new place to live in and spend some time before moving on. On this album, it happened that every session we were able to record came between work loads that rendered us at that point of sleeping and waking. Like the poppy fields in wizard of oz, we went in and out of consciousness at various times during recording. This is not a bad thing. Nor does it make the record sound like we're asleep. It has the momentum of that place between sleep and being awake, and in that narrow slip of existence lies a landscape of reason that most of us hurry past in daily lives. This record is planted firmly there."
