Purge & Slouch

Genre: Country, Folk

Giant Sand Purge & Slouch (Restless) Maybe it’s the band’s desert-encircled Tucson, Ariz., home, but the songs of Giant Sand leader Howe Gelb strip country, rock, and folk down to something dusty, eerie, and true. With its squeaky guitars and cow-punk melodies, the group lurches into a world of its own, resulting in music with a rashackle charm. B+ -Jim Farber
