Field Recordings From The Cook County Water Table
Released: Jul 1999
Label: Thrill Jockey Inc.
This first full-length effort from Tortoise bassist, Doug McCombs is a wonderful, rumbling essay of fluid melodies and sparse, drifting atmosphere. Though there is much help provided musically, this is McComb's show the whole way, nimbly performing tracks like "The Field Code" and "Another Routine Day Breaks" with grace.
