What exactly are ‘road songs?’ The nebulous term is used frequently to describe the work of itinerant musician Cass McCombs, and is one that fits securely to him. McCombs’ compositions seem to drift languidly through through space and time, meandering across a vast and empty plain with a fell twang and the bittersweet taste of time already spent. His seventh and latest LP, Big Wheel and Others, is out now on Domino Records, a full twenty two tracks of music of and for American highways.
