25-year anniversary re-issue of Giant Sand’s eclectic gem Glum. An epic windswept desert dry encounter with one of America’s greatest bands that traverses genres and styles to create a complete masterpiece. Emotional and uplifting, and always thought provoking, the band’s line up of Howe Gelb, latter day Calexico’s Joey Burns and John Convertino are joined by Victoria Williams, Pete Holsapple, Chris Cacavas, Pappy Allen and Lisa Germano, the whole shebang produced by Daniel Lanois protégé Malcolm Burn.
The 25th Anniversary reissue of this conceptual masterpiece comes complete with a second disc capturing a classic KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic session just prior to the original album’s release in 1994.
“While the guitars still squall and roar, they're used more sparingly, erupting to devastating effect in gloomy, low-key songs.” The Quietus
“Giant Sand move to the darker side of their emotional stew. Within is jazz, country, folk, blues – even Glam, we’re led to believe – the mainstay is downbeat but the result is monumental.” Happenstance magazine
