Brokeback is the longstanding project of Douglas McCombs. McCombs is a member of Tortoise, Eleventh Dream Day, The Sea and Cake, and Pullman, and has worked with Tom Ze, Azita Youseffi, Will Oldham, Calexico & Yo La Tengo. The current Brokeback quartet lineup features McCombs joined by James Elkington (Tweedy, Steve Gunn), Pete Croke (Exit Verse, Tight Phantomz), & Areif Sless-Kitain (The Eternals)

"Each album develops with exacting detail, revealing McCombs’s gift for dialing in the essence of a mood, feeling, or distant locale with a handful of reverb-laden guitar tones, elegant and sustained, strategically placed and sparingly deployed. The instrumental landscapes he creates on Illinois River Valley Blues are utterly transportive, evoking familiar open-frontier soundtracks and charting out new sonic territory." - Thrill Jockey
