Rarely was an album more aptly named, since it finds our itinerant hero Howe Gelb darting across the globe. Gelb currently lives in Aarhus, Denmark, hence his visits to studios in Aarhus and Copenhagen - but he also jumped on the redeye for the long haul back to his spiritual home, Tucson.
The instrumentation on All Over the Map, cut free from any technology that would date it, effectively captures the same moods: The upright bass, the brushes for drumsticks, and Anders Pederson's forlorn lap-steel work evoke spaces wide-open yet intimate at the same time. The instrumental fragments "Ploy" and "Rag" refracts a snatch of lost Americana, and on "Drab" and "Les Forçats Innocents", the band sounds like they're making cantina music for the most somber, subdued bar imaginable. The first full-length solo album from former Houndmouth Katie Toupin is a giant leap forward thanks to an eclectic style and top-shelf songwriting.
Giant Sand (also currently recording as Giant Giant Sand) is an American band from Tucson, Arizona. Its most constant member is singer-songwriter Howe Gelb. The group started as Giant Sandworms in the late 1970s post-punk and paisley underground scenes. They later shortened their name and developed an idiosyncratic sound rooted in alternative country but touching on a wide range of other styles and featuring Gelb's beatnik-influenced vocals and songwriting.
