Cass McCombs – “Empty Promises”

By Amrit Singh / December 3, 2012

Cass McCombs has a few dates coming up with John Cale, and a new single made for the Wikileaks-embroiled US soldier “Bradley Manning.” Today Cass unleashes an internet stream of the “Manning” b-side, “Empty Promises,” an occasionally tuneful cut suffused with low-fidelity recording and vaguely flanged/psychedelic, bummed-out ennui:

The “Bradley Manning” b/w “Empty Promises” single is out via Domino.
