The Low SpAAAArk

Arizona Amp & Alternator is Howe Gelb’s latest project for one of my favorite labels Thrill Jockey, who’ve apparently just redesigned their site for the first time in eight years. (Three-disc set of rare Tortoise coming out this spring, incidentally.)

Arizona’s self-titled debut features M.Ward, a few Grandaddy guys, Scout Niblett, Jeremy from Arcade Fire, and “Danish chanteuse Marie Frank.” But Gelb is the “head mechanic” as the site says.

Check out AAAA’s Traffic cover.

And an even better version from RLJ.

If anyone’s got the original handy, send my way and I’ll throw up on the server so you can see hear what blew people’s mind’s in 1971 … and all the Winwood fans can come out of the closet.

UPDATE: We asked. YouSentIt. (Thanks Scott S.) Go here for Traffic purposes.
