A sense of place has been essential to the music of Brokeback since guitarist/bassist Douglas McCombs first launched the project in Initially conceived as a solo outlet, the Chicago group has taken on new dimensions over the past two decades, morphing from the lean, pastoral ambience of the first album, Field Recordings from the Cook County Water Table, to the more muscular, taut /5(5).
The instrumental landscapes on ‘Illinois River Valley Blues’ are utterly transportive, evoking familiar open-frontier soundtracks and charting out new sonic territory. The album features guest vocals from Amalea Tshilds (The Paulina Hollers) and a cover of a Rob Mazurek (Chicago Underground, Exploding Star Orchestra)-written ballad.
Illinois River Valley Blues is a winding, wistful travelogue that not only captures darker textures but mines their depths. That’s been part of McCombs’s vision for Brokeback from the start: “To me a song is not worth writing if it doesn't have a strong sense of melancholy,” he says.”.
