1500 pressed on Creamy White vinyl & DL card.

First time on vinyl since 1998 for this magnificent patchwork collage of the Giant Sand main man’s eclectic muses; a cut and paste gem, meandering, melancholy and beautiful. Classic solo album from Giant Sand’s main man Howe Gelb circa 1998, re-issued with new liner notes and remastered on cream vinyl.

A catch-all collection from the much-travelled troubadour that brings together a wealth of personal recordings edited into an intriguing ponder wander through the man’s thinking. A truly intoxicating set of songs buoyed by Howe Gelb’s prosaic prose and effortless use of the mind-bending one-liner.

“’Hisser’ is the vision of a truly unique and engaging talent, and in its pure heart and soul lies a masterpiece.” College Music Journal

“Pure genius and usually chaotic, Howe Gelb is a cottage industry… often labelled the Godfather of alternative country.” BOMB magazine

“There are wonderful glimpses of what Gelb is capable of when he’s not rushing off to dabble with the next nugget in a seemingly inexhaustible flow of ideas.” The Line Of Best Fit 

“One of those albums that could have a semi-permanent spot next to the hi-fi for late-night playing.” The Independent
