Brokeback - Brokeback And The Black Rock
Christ, 2013 has barely begun and already great records are getting released.
This is a side project of one of the people in Tortoise and sounds a bit like Ry Cooder. Kind of stretched out desert guitar stuff. Y'know Ennio Morricone and all the jazz.
Obviously it's one of Tortoise so it's quite intricate and subtly complex. Definitely going to require a lot of listens to fully get everything that's going on but even on a first listen it's pleasant.
No idea why I have checked out any Tortoise side projects before considering Millions Now Living Will Never Die is one of my favourite records. Ho hum, I've started now and it seems like a good thing to do.
Can't seem to find anywhere to stream it online but it's worth tracking down. Currently listening to a naughty soulseek version but the proper version is getting bought come pay day (yeah, that post-christmas pay day that takes forever and ever to arrive!)
I'll be buying it from Boomkat in the UK - http://boomkat.com/downloads/645091-brokeback-brokeback-and-the-black-rock
