Tell ‘Em Howe: Listen to Giant Giant Sand’s “Not the End of the World”

Dec 21st, 2012 in Music

Mayan, shmayan.  Check out (and download) below Giant Giant Sand and the gifted Howe Gelb’s tangential take on this end-of-the-world nonsense in their song, Not The End of The World.  The piano-based track is an alternate take (featuring both Gelb and Lonna Kelley) from the band’s great recent album Tucson (Deluxe Edition), which Edition includes 27 (!) songs  including different versions of eight songs from the album.  One of the biggest and best surprises of the concert year was the phenomenal set put on by Gelb and Giant Giant Sand at this year’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival.  Gelb and band are masters of manifold music genres, varying from Latino sounds, to blistering rock, to piano jazz at the drop of a sombrero.  It was a tour de force.  Superb.  Check out the sublime Not the End of the World (and listen to some of their other songs), and then go buy Tucson HERE.
