If you dig Tortoise—and how could you not?—you should probably find some space in your precious schedule for Brokeback, the long-running side project of Tortoise bassist Douglas McCombs. (He also plays with the Sea and Cake, Pullman, and Eleventh Dream Day.) Brokeback’s latest album, 2017’s Illinois River Valley Blues, follows in the vein of their other releases: lyrical rock instrumentals that recall Tortoise at their most pensive and pastoral. Brokeback are masters of subdued, melancholy beauty, and McCombs is backed by some great musicians: Tweedy and Steve Gunn collaborator James Elkington on guitar, drummer Areif Sless-Kitain of the Eternals, and bassist Pete Croke of Exit Verse.
