MP3 At 3PM: Giant Sand

Fire Records is reissuing the entire back catalog of the legendary¬†Giant Sand. Last year marked the 25th anniversary of the band’s Valley Of Rain debut, and the Tucson, Ariz., quartet recently issued the new Blurry Blue Mountain. Giant Sand has had countless lineups over the years (John Convertino and Joey Burns of Calexico were longtime members), but the one constant has been singer/songwriter Howe Gelb. Fire’s reissue series continues with 1991’s Ramp, 1992’s Center Of The Universe and 1993’s Purge & Slouch and will eventually include roughly 30 Giant Sand, Gelb and side-project albums, culminating in two boxed sets. Download “Romance Of Falling” (from Ramp), “Pathfinder” (from Center Of The Universe) and “Bender” (from Purge & Slouch) below.
