Howe Gelb (Giant Sand): ”How I play music is what I’ve learned from natures elements”

BR: Giant Sand isn’t a band in the typical meaning of the term. It seems like ˮmore a legend than a band” sometimes. Can you tell us, in your opinion, what Giant Sand is? Howe: It’s a season. And that season, like any other season, keeps rolling around now and again. BR: How does the concept of collaborating with different musicians, and even with people that […]
