Giant Giant Sand

It's not a typo. Howe Gelb has expanded the line-up of his Giant Sand to twelve members and fittingly renamed the group to Giant Giant Sand. Their new album "Tuscon" (self-described as a country rock opera, no less) is coming on June 11th, 2012 on Fire Records and the excellent "Forever And A Day" is the first taste from it. It sounds wonderfully dusty!

And here's an older favorite from Gelb's and Giant Sand's rich history - "Shiver" from the 2001 album "Chore of Enchantment":
