Cass McCombs is set to release his new record, a probable stunner, entitled ‘Catacombs’ on June 1st. Like his previous LP ‘Dropping The Writ’, ‘Catacombs’ possesses that rare ability to attack both the listener’s heart with its melodies and textures, and head with its poetry and themes. In the greatest of American traditions, McCombs carries on transcending fad and fashion to ensure the art of songwriting lives on. If you have ears that work, you’ll like it. Sadly though we’ve our hands tied behind our backs by a certain Domino Records – so we’ll just have to give you a stiff shot of some older material to get you in the mood instead. Damn fine Cass, damn fine if you’re listening.
