Former Giant Sand frontman Howe Gelb makes it a cool two-dozen solo albums with Gathered. On his latest LP we find Gelb doubling-down on that Tom Waits-inspired sound that has served him so well of late. We’re talking more The Heart Of Saturday Night than Mule Variations, by the way - crooners instead of howlers. Guests include M Ward, Anna Karina and the superbly-named Juan Panki.

Howe Gelb is that guy from Giant Sand - a band who  - alongside Meat Puppets - I'm starting to decide I might quite like after all. Is it too late? Hope not. 

Turns out he's made two dozen or so solo albums which gives me a lot of catching up to do. His sound is an agreeable softly plucked form of countryish blues with hints of jazz. old time music basically. His gravelly voice is not unlike Tom Waits but where Waits often wants you to be seasick  - this is soothing and seductive. A slow moving late night swirl of jazzy melodies and whiskey drenched mutterings. It's not totally what I was expecting but it's hard not to enjoy this. It sits as background music and won't get you out of your chair. The duet with Anna Karina is hilarious, Like Edith Piaf duetting with Leonard Cohen. 

A strange album  - he's certainly ploughing his own path here but it's just a nice thing to have plodding away while you do something else.
