Brokeback is the name of Tortoise bassist Douglas McCombs’ side project. Following two 7″ EPs, in 1999 he released the project’s first full-length, Field Recordings from the Cook County Water Table, which revealed a slightly less constricted version of the post-rock sound Tortoise had made famous.
L.A. Takedown align the moody grandeur of a film score with the pure melodicism of pop. Led by Los Angeles-based composer/multi-instrumentalist Aaron M. Olson, the live band delivers a guitar-driven take on synth-pop that’s inspired its own genre.
Tara Jane O’Neil
Anyone who is able to make music that functions as both poem and song possesses something that warrants a special sort of regard. Eclectic multi-instrumentalist Tara Jane O’Neil has been doing just that since ’92, and nowhere is her talent more evident than on “Sand,” the lead single from her upcoming self-titled record, premiering today on The FADER.
