8/10 Jack 15th March 2016Gelb is a musician who takes his time and never sticks to a formula. Other than combining a smoke-filled, saloon-sounding piano with the twang and buzz of southwestern guitar. Not to mention a little backup from friends like Neko Case, M. Ward and Marie Frank, with the resulting sound like a musical equivalent of a deep, dark drive down the highway at twilight. Standout tracks from this album called proVISIONS include "Increment of love", "Stranded Pearl", "Belly full of fire" and "Well enough alone."
