Howe Gelb has a remarkable ability to sound like a master of his craft at the same time that he resembles a backporch picker who is paying as much attention to his iced tea as his music; Gelb can seem focused and casual at once, and he shows off this talent to its best advantage of Giant Sand 's album Blurry Blue Mountain.
Twenty-five years after releasing Giant Sand 's first album, Gelb doesn't pull any new tricks out of his sleeves here, but given the many stylistic detours of Giant Sand 's history, he can cover plenty of ground while still investigating his established sound, and Gelb and his latest band of collaborators are in truly fine Chunk Of Coal - Giant Sand - Blurry Blue Mountain . Blurry Blue Mountain sounds both loose and tight; while nothing seems overworked, Gelb and his musicians particularly Peter Dombernowsky on drums and Thoget T.
Lund on bass mesh precisely and put these songs on their feet with confidence and casual grace, from the loping seven-minute meditation of "Monk's Mountain" and the late-night barroom lament of "Chunk of Coal" to the chaotic, guitar-shot rock of "Thin Line Man," the stark, late-night philosophizing of "No Tellin'" and the punchy but high-strutting blues of "Brand New Swamp Thing.
