Gathered is the 24th solo studio album from Giant Sand main man Howe Gelb. Following two much praised jazz-tinged ‘Future Standards’ collections, a wider net captures Gelb’s discordant phrasings and clever romantic lyricism. Joined by a host of collaborators from all over the world, including Gabriel Naim Amor, Fernando Vacas, Juan Panki, The Lost Brothers, Anna Karina, JB Meijers, Kira Skov and Gelb’s own daughter Talula.
Gathered focusses on Gelb’s celebrated song-writing style, filled with emotive tunes and heart-warming arrangements invariably offset by gorgeous discordant moments. A chance meeting of the indie/alt country Sinatra annotated by clever wordplay, teased by tongue twisters and an earthy ramble.
“Gelb’s long-held fascination with words, particularly the way certain ones rub up against one another or encourage an allusive phrase, usually stretched over an odd meter, is a joy.” Uncut
"A wandering troubadour in search of treasured happenstance.” Quietus
