The great American songwriter Cass McCombs has released a ton of music in the last decade or so, and his new album Big Wheel And Others is his longest and most expansive piece of work yet. The album sprawls loosely over 85 minutes, and it works as a direct transmission from McCombs’s rambling, hazily bummed-out soundworld. We’ve already posted the early songs “Morning Star” and “There Can Be Only One,” as well as “Brighter!,” a collaboration with the late singer and actress Karen Black. And now you can stream the entire vast album at NPR.
Big Wheel And Others is out 10/15 on Domino.
