Cass McCombs (Concord, California) has always mentioned, especially at the beginning of his career, his attachment for nomadic existence, for not stopping: from one city to another, living in cars or at campsites, changing this bed for that sofa. In view of this, it is not surprising that after releasing his first album, “A” (2003), he spent two years on tour playing everywhere: both on his own, from concerts in flats to the festival All Tomorrow’s Parties, as opening for others like Blonde Redhead. He had the privilege of having previously toured with Palace and then added the one of sharing tour with Modest Mouse when he released his second album, “PREfection”, in 2005. It was in that moment when he began to appear in the lists of “The Best of the Year” and “Artists to Watch”, a circumstance that as time passed was becoming frequent, coming to be classified as one of the best contemporary American composers.
On February 8th, he releases a new LP, “Tip Of The Sphere”, under the label Anti. At the moment, Cass has released two wonderful tracks from this work, “Sleeping Volcanoes” and “Star”, that suggest it will become an important album in 2019 evoking similar landscapes to those who draw the songs of groups like The War On Drugs.
