Cass McCombs / White Magic
LAMC No. 6

Okay, fourth of these Famous Class splits up for review today is from Cass McCombs and White Magic. On McCombs’s side, the prolific and consistently decent singer-songwriter doles out a slow-burner called ‘If Y...view item »

Cass McCombs
Mangy Love

Cass McCombs is now established as a songwriter of the highest order. Mangy Love is lyrically his darkest record yet, all seen with his uniquely aware and often humorous eye. Musically it’s experimental soul, warped psychedelia, rock, hip-hop and beat poetry that shapes the album's upbeat and immediate sound. Gues...view item »

Cass McCombs
A Folk Set Apart

A Folk Set Apart by Cass McCombs is an anthology of rarities, b-sides, and what McCombs refers to as Space Junk. The songs span an eleven year period, from 2003-2014. Fans will be delighted with this - but it will also entice new listeners, who can use it as a gateway to his back catalogue. Available on 19-track CD and ...view item »

Cass McCombs
Big Wheel (And Others)

It has come to my attention that I have never reviewed a Cass McCombs record before. This dude must’ve been churning out the discs for about 10 years now so it’s about time I scribed something about him I suppose. Here’s his latest, and possibly his most ambitious to date - a mammoth 19-song d...view item »

Cass McCombs
WIT'S END / Humor Risk

If you've heard the past album, then trust me that this one is just about as good, but you may find the listening experience different. It's a little quieter and dirge-like, not as hook-laden, and the average song is longer, the last one being over nine minutes. I did find the vocal lines to get repetitive in many parts, as they often followed m...view item »

Cass McCombs
Humor Risk

Cass McCombs has been knocking about for a while being rather good at what he does but not exciting me enough to invest myself in his work. This is his fifth record for Domino and his second in a year so he certainly ain't no slacker... well, not musically anyway. 'Humor Risk' starts with ...view item »

Cass McCombs
Wit's End

Cass McCombs recently announced that he would only be doing press interviews by letter. Good on him I say, journalism has become so lazy these days ever since email came into being. Cut and paste, cut and paste. Leaving all that aside, something has obviously got into Cass in recent times, with an album called 'Wits End' containing a track calle...view item »

Cass McCombs
A

The boys have kindly left me 2 of my favourite albums I've heard so far this year. The 1st 'un being by Cass Mccombs on 4AD. It's called 'A' as in 'A is for alphabet', 'B is for bugger' etc...... This is a gorgeous album full of pop gems. Sounding like a less demented Daniel Johnston and a little like ...view item »

Cass McCombs
Prefection

Cass Mccombs is a bit of a god to us here. His last album we all liked which is a rarity here at the Towers. There's usually someone grumbling "this is shit". Cass escaped our wicked snobbery and his new album is here which we all seem to like again. He's like a more sane together Daniel Johnston. Which is a good thing r...view item »

Cass McCombs
That's That

Cass Mccombs has always been seriously approved here at the towers. Those earlier albums ruled. He's left 4AD and shifted over to megaindie Domino. Funnily enough I had no idea he'd signed to Domino til someone told me they'd seen 7 copies of his new album in a big 2nd hand shop in Manchester. I've been itching to hear the new album. I emailed...view item »

Cass McCombs
Dreams Come True Girl

Old fat crooner face Cass McCombs is back again on Domino after his last odd lounge flop that left Phil & I - serious fans up till that point - a little nonplussed and confused. After the jangling majesty of songs such as 'Sacred Heart', why am I being subjected to Richard Hawley Jr? He sounds about 12 and the music on new single 'Dreams Come T...view item »

Cass McCombs
Catacombs

Cass McCombs has his 'Catacombs' full length out this week and it kicks off with 'Dreams-Come-True-Girl' which was the preceding single that Brian reviewed the other week so I'll skip that tune.. Okay so you probably already know the score with this guys music. He's highly regarded as being one of the kings of the current bunch of American singer s...view item »

Cass McCombs
Dropping The Writ

OK so I finally get to hear the Cass Mccombs new album being a bit of a fan 'n all. On 1st hearing 'Dropping The Writ' completely disappointed me beyond belief. I thought it sounded like the weakest Cass album to date... I've heard it a few more times now and I have to say I still think it's his weakest work. It's getting better but it's still not ...view item »

Cass McCombs
Sacred Heart

A knackered Clint here with the first batch of goodies. The first thing to fall into my grubby mitt is the new single from Cass McCombs  - a 2 track CD. 2 tracks that's 1 2  - I mean does anyone really think he's going to get into the charts especially when you consider the music concealed within. Side A is aiming for the 80's...view item »

Cass McCombs
Not The Way

The first one is a CD by Cass Mccombs. This is the UK issue of the magnificent 'Not TheWay' CD EP we raved on about earlier this year (or was it last year?). Its now on 4AD so hopefully this will raise Mr McCombs popularity somewhat. There's 6 tracks all good but the first on, the title track is just magn...view item »
