Hear New Sound: Cass McCombs' "The Same Thing"


Alt-country badass, Cass McCombs, is certainly making the most out of his 2011. The Los Angeles-based musician already released his excellent fifth LP, Wit's End, this past April and has now made the surprise announcement that LP 6 will be ready for the world's ears on November 8th via Domino. Humor Risk is the name of Cass' forthcoming effort and judging by its first listen, "The Same Thing," it's anything but in comparison to the melancholy Leonard Cohen-esque balladry that the prolific songwriter brought to your cassette player earlier this spring. Livened by a kickstart drum beat, it's more upbeat and rich with guitar textures and layers of vocals that we haven't heard much of since 2009 when Cass delved deep into the Catacombs. A nice change of pace in "The Same Thing"...
