I've been a huge fan of Brokeback for a long time now.  Heard about them through their Thrill Jockey/Tortoise affiliations. 

I love their record "Looks At The Bird," and their latest, "Brokeback And The Black Rock"  is no disappointment.  They shun the heavy editing and electronic/glitch sounds on this record, and rely on a stripped-down instrumentation led by fuzzy, twangy guitars.  It's comparable to a sound like Friends Of Dean Martinez or Calexico (minus the vocals).  Dreamy, dusty, desert dirges.
