[stream] Cass McCombs – “County Line”

Cass McCombswill release WIT’S END (caps intended, not a “caps lock” error), his 5th full length studio album, through Domino on April 12.  “County Line” is the slow & gorgeous album opener in which McCombs’ aching falsetto reminds me of a Richard Manuel-sung ballad by The Band.  And I can’t think of a higher compliment.  Domino says the record is his darkest yet and finds McCombs going deeper into the mania of a man buried alive inside his self-made Catacombs.  Fine with me if it sounds like this.
