Cass McCombs has been popping into this blog more than most artists so it’s safe to assume we are fans. Born in Concord his wandering nature has seen him taking up residency in several cities throughout the U.S. He is currently based in L.A. where his 3rd LP ‘Dropping The Writ’ was recorded. McCombs has yet to make a definitive record but along the way he has dreamed up several genuine classics. ‘Windfall’ is one of them, a fragile composition highlighting McCombs affecting vocals. In some ways, especially towards the end, the song has a certain Sigur Ros quality so you can imagine how cherisable that sounds. McCombs is coming to Whelan’s on Saturday 15th November and we’ve got 2 double passes to give away for the gig. If you’d like to go just send an email to the usual address.
Update: Congrats to Stephen Banville & Clive Sullivan. KD
