David Daniell & Douglas McCombs: Versions - The second collaboration release between Douglas McCombs (Tortoise, Brokeback, Eleventh Dream Day) and David Daniell will be released May 15th on Chicago's Thrill Jockey Records. The double-album, titled Versions, features one LP of material assembled by recording engineer and producer Bundy K. Brown (ex-Tortoise) from the same recording sessions as the duo's first album Sycamore.  The second LP includes recordings of two live performances.

Filmmaker Timothy Leeds has created a beautiful video for one of the tracks from Versions, which you can watch here:

Shop online: You can now buy many David Daniell (and related) releases directly from the discography page. Some of the items there are very hard-to-find these days - some with only one or two copies remaining - so act quickly.  For many of the releases, there are also links which will take you to Klicktrack, the iTunes Music Store, or the Other Music Digital store, where you can purchase MP3s.
