Cass McCombs seems to be getting bleaker and bleaker with every release, and new cut “If You Loved Me Before,” the a-side of the latest installment in the label Famous Class’s charity 7″ series, is probably his most lovelorn downer yet. Over simple, distorted, hollow-sounding guitar chords and the saddest keyboard solo ever, McCombs gets serious about love, loss, and pain, his voice yearning as if for forgiveness. Check it out.
New: Cass McCombs – “If You Loved Me Before”
Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
From his still-unannounced new album, featuring Thundercat, Bilal and production from Astronote.
With help from Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and an amazing piano.
These guys would probably get along if they ever met.
Another track from Future Brown’s upcoming self-titled record.
