David Daniell & Douglas McCombs - Versions 2x12''
label: thrill jockey
"David Daniell (San Agustin) and Douglas McCombs's (Tortoise) first
collaborative album, ‘Sycamore’, was assembled from seven hours of
in-studio improvisations. Daniell and McCombs sifted through the
material looking for their favourite moments, then combined, cross
faded, mixed, and matched those moments into something that
made sense to them as a long player.
For their new release, the double LP ‘Versions’, they gave the same
seven hours of material to noted recording engineer and producer
Ken Brown (ex-Tortoise), who was given free rein to assemble an LP
of his choosing (subject to approval, of course).
The results are fantastic. Brown has chosen to highlight moments in
the music that the normally reserved Daniell and McCombs probably
would not have chosen. There’s a wider dynamic range on ‘Versions’,
from brutally raw to delicate to practically inaudible. The other
interesting aspect is that Brown’s selections rarely cross over with the
material on ‘Sycamore’. This is in no way a remix, and that is exactly
what Daniell and McCombs were hoping for.
In addition, ‘Versions’ includes a second LP of two live performances.
These were chosen to show how Daniell and McCombs's music
develops in a live setting. Improvising in a recording studio and
improvising in front of an audience are two vastly different things.
Montreal and Knoxville were two of Daniell and McCombs's favourite
performances from their tours together.
Over the years Daniell has collaborated with many notable musicians,
including Loren Connors, Rhys Chatham, Tim Barnes, Jeph Jerman,
Thurston Moore, Greg Davis, and Jonathan Kane, as well as releasing
numerous albums under his own name and with his band San
Agustin on labels such as Table Of The Elements and Family
McCombs is more often seen wielding a bass guitar, whether as a
member of Eleventh Dream Day, the acoustic collective Pullman, or
the pioneering and inimitable Tortoise; in his role as the driving force
behind Brokeback; or through his varied work with the likes of Tom
Ze, Azita Youseffi, Will Oldham, Yo La Tengo, and Calexico.
‘Versions’ features many highly regarded drummers Chad Taylor
(Chicago Underground), Frank Rosaly, John Herndon (Tortoise), and
Steven Hess (Locrian, Cleared).
