Over the course of four decades squatting on rock ‘n’ roll’s outskirts, Howe Gelb has made a career defying expectations — his fans’ regularly, and no doubt his own from time to time. It’s one of his extensive catalog’s central draws. Ensconced in the un-rock ‘n’ roll hub of Tucson for most of that time, Gelb’s weirdo muse first conjured in the hard rock-cum-post-punk Giant Sand (nee Giant Sandworms) before morphing into a host of other sonic dimensions. There’ve been outings in twisted country (The Band of Blacky Ranchette records), flamenco flavored gypsy fare (Alegrias), gospel choir-infused indie rock (‘Sno Angel), and even a recent turn to aging-in-style jazz piano trio (this year’s Future Standards, reviewed HERE at Blurt).
All these twists and turns, though, are uniquely Gelbian. Even the most considered retain a relaxed feel, where a clever rhyme or humorous quip trumps any literal sense, and the loose music vibe never drifts far from the open skies of his home range. Released in 2005, the first Arizona Amp and Alternator LP served as a revved-up extension of his country leanings and featured a host of cameos, including the likes of M. Ward, Grandaddy, Scout Niblett and even the Arcade Fire drummer.
It was a laissez-faire effort by even Gelb standards, and The Open Road — the first project since to bear the Arizona Amp and Alternator brand — pushes that notion even further as a “collection of sketches from several different projects spanning over the last 5 years.” What’s remarkable, though, is how these instrumental doodlings, fully fleshed-out tunes, live show-takes and collaborations stand on their own as both intro and primer to Gelb’s delightfully off-kilter world.
Here, in the title track and “Shapeshifter,” are the echoes of late friend/collaborator/mentor Rainer Ptacek’s high plains, lone rider surf guitar — what Blurt’s esteemed editor first labeled “desert noir.” “Every Now and Then” and “Llueve en Mi Corazon” find Gelb delving into the accordion-fueled Norteño rock that former Giant Sand bandmates Joey Burns and John Convertino incorporated to define Calexico. The snare-driven thrum of “Contraption” and a live duet with Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle (“Left”) highlight some of the elements that helped Giant Sand crossover to the indie rock crowd, and the sexy duet with Phoenix native Lonna Kelley (“Left of Center”) reminds us that Gelb usually pairs well the ladies, from Victoria Williams and PJ Harvey to Neko Case and Cat Power. There’s even a couple of numbers — “Piano of Erosion” and a live take on Chore of Enchantment‘s “Bottom Line Man” (called “Bottom Line Again, Man” here) — that scratch Gelb’s long-standing jazz piano itch.
Such a hodge-podge would instantly qualify as completists-only fare for most musicians. But the rules are different for Gelb, whose whole career has celebrated the alchemy of happy accidents. The Open Road isn’t essential, and only scratches the surface of Gelb World, but even a drop-in visit like this proves worth one’s while.

Italy's Zucchero has been singing in a mix of Italian and English for years. But early in his career, Miles Davis told him to stick to Italian.

There are several young bands on the Americana scene today who are pushing the progressive boundaries of bluegrass style while keeping their roots in the traditional sounds they’ve harvested from around the country. Front Country is one of the best at that, and Other Love Songs makes the case for why they don’t have many equals.

New full-length delivery from these hillbilly wackos, playing rock’n’roll rooted in mountain music. The band’s name is a linguistic play on the name AC/DC, while the album’s title is inspired by Funkadelic.

Good music has the power to transport. Especially on the dance floor, the right soundtrack can make you close your eyes, leave everything behind and travel to new places. The new album Bennu from Wonderwheel delivers this type of experience. As a complete body of work, or track for track, the album uses the whim of exotica to draw us in and takes us around the globe. It takes teeth to be able to mash up Ghanaian vocals with Ecuadorian marimbas, to host four languages on one album and offer dembow soul next to dancehall and chopped up African rhythms. New York-based producer Thor Partridge, AKA Thornato, shows up and shows off his handling and arranging style with an honest curiosity and admiration for the sounds he stacks. Bennu is a Thor’s sonic bouquet, a collection of musical stems picked from Jamaica, Ecuador, South Africa, Colombia and beyond that when gathered together, seem to enhance each other.
As diverse as the record is, there is a consistency in the approach to the mashups. Thor explains his relationship to music, “…sometimes you meet a stranger and it feels as if you’ve known them forever. Music can be the same. It’s the one language that all human beings can communicate with regardless of language. I’m attracted to sounds that can stand on their own. I don’t like to process sounds too much, I think it loses its soul…” The comfort in Bennu is the way it curates contemporary sounds with traditional elements, building bridges with elements of familiarity.
One of the highlights on the album is the Afro-Ecuadorian sound in “El Oro De La Tolita.” Although there has always been a large population of descendants of African slaves in Ecuador, the sonic culture is less recognized than from neighboring countries. Many of these African slaves settled along the northwest coast in the province of Esmeraldas. This is home to Grupo Taribo, featured on the track. “El Oro De La Tolita” pays homage to this place through rhythms dropping along the planks of a marimba, honoring the ancestors that were known for their excellent metal work. Marimba is a Bantu word for xylophone and is an instrument that likely evolved from its ancestor, the balafon, archiving the movements in the African diaspora. With the skills that Thor is steadily becoming known for up and down the Americas, look for the Busy Twist remix of “El Oro De La Tolita” that weaves in Ghanaian singer Abongo in a style that pretty much commands the body to dance.
Another favorite track is “Deux a Deux” that takes us to South Africa. During a month-long recording session in Cape Town, Thor linked with Avi Heavner and Dan Eppel. “Dan’s studio turned in to a meeting place for us and musicians from all over South Africa and beyond. We got to work and record with some amazing musicians, one of which is the legendary uhadi bow player, Madosini. We also worked with some artists from Democratic Republic of the Congo and I become very fond of kwassa kwassa. It’s basically a subgenre of soukous and there are some really nice dance moves that accompany the music.” The track “Deux a Deux” spotlights South African duo Kongo Elektro, made up of Dan Eppel and Mapumba. While the song begins with a gentle South African township cadence, it peaks with Caribbean-inspired raga. In the end, it is all about the drums. The song feels like a postcard from good times, a sonic memento.
“Chemagei” is another fire starter. With angled rhythms that are reminiscent of tracks MIA or Buraka Som Sistema would be on, the song is as raw as it is polished. The vocals come from the Kalenjin people of Kenya and were recorded by the Singing Wells Project, a nonprofit organization with the London record label Abubilla Music and Ketebul Music in Kenya. The aim of the project is to identify, preserve and promote diverse musical traditions in eastern Africa. I would say mission accomplished in this track.
After hearing the album a few times, the reason for its name Bennu becomes apparent. According to Egyptian myth, the bennu bird is a self-created deity that represents the soul of Ra, a sun god. The bennu rises from dust, like a phoenix, and soars. The album never loses sight of traditions, but is far from bound by them. Guarantee this won’t be the last time you will be hearing about Bennu: like the legend, it is about to take flight.
