Performer Notes
  • Arizona singer/songwriter Howe Gelb knowingly looks like a fish out of water on the back cover of this 2006 album, standing in the snow while wearing short sleeves. This notion extends to the music itself, which finds the eccentric Giant Sand frontman bolstering his quirky desert-rock sound with a gospel choir. While the conceit is certainly unusual given Gelb's gleefully rambling lo-fi tunes, it works surprisingly well on many of 'SNO ANGEL LIKE YOU's tracks. The choral arrangements add both soul and structure to Gelb's Neil Young-esque numbers, including the lilting "Paradise Here Abouts" and the boisterous "Howlin' a Gale." Although the record may seem like little more than a curiosity to some, patient listeners will enjoy SNO ANGEL's odd yet fascinating charms.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] feels freshly ironic and original....He's struck quite a nice balance between his own dusty, beat-up songs...and the more fulsome gush of the choir."

Magnet (p.98) - "The arrangements are study in balance, with no choral overkill and enough room left for Gelb to rock out when the spirit moves him to do so."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.98) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "It's remarkable how organic and right the church voices sound on these 14 melodic folk, spare soul and various-tempo blues songs..."
