Cass McCombs is a wandering minstrel. Born and raised in Northern California, the prolific singer/songwriter has worked a number of unusual jobs, crashed on sofas all over the country, and explored a variety of musical genres. In 2011, the artist released two albums via Domino Records, Wit's End and Humor Risk. Both critically lauded, the former filled with soulful stripped-down songs wracked with despair, while the ladder more aggressive and rhythm-based, seemingly upbeat by McCombs' standards. Now, McCombs is back with a new LP to tout, Big Wheel And Others. Containing 22 songs, perhaps it's more of an epic rather than an album. Tune in tonight, when the enigma emerges to feed his cult-like minions with his newest folkloric musings.
