Track taken from his most excellent new solo album.
By Blurt Staff
Always a good day around the Blurt arroyo when we have some fresh Gabriel Sullivan to share with you. The Tucson-based musician, who’s worked with Giant Sand, Marianne Dissard, Billy Sedlmayr and others, is also a prolific solo artist. He just released the JVPITER album – you might recall we premiered his cover of Springsteen’s “Ghost Of Tom Joad” from the album awhile back – and we are proud to unveil the record’s first video. It’s for the tune “Hollow Hunter”:
Gabriel told us a little about the song, saying, “Hollow Hunter” is in my mind perhaps the most representative of the way I view the JVPITER album. It embodies the cold and somewhat alien feeling of the record while maintaining its earthy roots. The basic tracking for this song was done in Denmark while all the string, percussion, and electronics overdubs were done in Tucson… which is perhaps what gives it its balance between two worlds.”
Speaking of two worlds, Sullivan will be hitting France this spring, in April, so for any of our overseas readers in the vicinity, check him out.
