Over the past decade, Cass McCombs has established
himself as one of our premier songwriters. It's a career
that's twisted and turned, from style to subject,
both between records and within them. McCombs has
one,Tip ofthe Sphere, isparticularly unique.
Tip of the Sphere is McCombs' 9th studio album and
while manyofhis records have been comprised of
songs recorded in different studios and pieced together
over time, this one was recorded quickly in one location
with a strong sense ofpurpose,resulting in his
most consistentrecord to date. Thisapproach brings
a raw immediacy to his songs, which are some of his
best yet as he finds the perfect balance of compassion
and experimentation. The rock songs rock harder,
the ballads are more beautiful, the experiments more
confident; with the sounds of jazz and latin music
creeping in through the back window. This isan artist
searching creative process.
Follow up to 2016's Mangy Love which
was McCombs' most critically praised
Deluxe LP includes 14tracks (3 bonus tracks),
an embossed cover, a poster and a ''castle''
-an insert that canbe folded andplaced
on top ofthe spinning vinyl.
