  • Photographer: Indiosa Patsy Jean Gelb.
  • Giant Sand mastermind Howe Gelb has been a stalwart desert-rocker since the mid-1980s, turning out a long string of sonic tumbleweeds full of dusty atmosphere and cracked Americana. On his 20th album, the Tom Waits of the mesa continues to refine his singular approach; lonesome piano ballads, Captain Beefheart-esque deconstructed blues, reverb-laden spy-movie fodder, Johnny Cash-on-downers country twang, it's all part of Gelb's arsenal, and his low, laconic singing is the connective tissue holding it all together. PROVISIONS proves that even 23 years into his recording career, Gelb is still essentially the same quirky, hermetic crackpot that we've come to know and love.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] galumphing rhythms and down-home accents....PROVISIONS has its Southern-fried charms."

Magnet (p.106) - "Persistently country-tinged in the first-half, the music bounces pinball-like in the second, with late-night piano balladry, over-caffeinated tango and shattered guitar noise."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The] album reminds of both Gelb's graceful musical facility and his subtle originality....Restful, intoxicating, sounding gorgeous."

Paste (magazine) (p.65) - "Gelb's raps are cooler than a caved gila monster's stomach scales. Often hushed and challenging, his greatest device remains the tactical use of open space, delineated sharply by skeletal guitars and the loose insinuation of movement..."

Clash (magazine) (p.110) - "PROVISIONS has a clear Southern identity but remains sonically diverse....A singular triumph..."
