Next week, the elusive, fascinating singer-songwriter Cass McCombs returns with his new LP Mangy Love, his first full-length since 2013’s confounding Big Wheel And Others. McCombs’ new album is even more of a left turn, mostly in how smooth it is. He remains a sharp and singular writer of lyrics, but his musicianship has pushed into chilled-out jam-band territory. We’ve already posted his early singles “Opposite House,” “Run Sister Run,” and “Medusa’s Outhouse.” And right now, you can stream the entire hour-long LP below, via NPR.
