Debut from Howie Gelb’s one-off project featuring members of Arcade Fire, Grandaddy, Scout Niblett and M Ward. Issued for Record Store Day 2021, Drop 2.

“From the godfather of alt-country, this side project is uniquely Howe with his stream of conscious ramblings and a special collective at his helm. This debut sees Grandaddy backing Traffic’s ‘Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys’ whilst Scout Niblett makes a cameo on ‘Recital’ and Frank Loesser’s ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ gets a new rendition featuring Danish singer Marie Lorette Friis. Other stand-out duets include ‘Loretta and the Insect World’ and ‘Where The Wind Turns The Skin To Leather’ that has a distinctly Lee Hazelwood feel”
