CASS MCCOMBS SIGNS TO ANTI

LISTEN TO A CASS MCCOMBS PRIMER VIA THE TALKOUSE
(PLAYLIST FEAT. SONGS CURATED BY MEMBERS OF THE WAR ON DRUGS, THE NATIONAL, GRIZZLY BEAR, VAMPIRE WEEKEND, JIM JAMES, ANGEL OLSEN, HAMILTON LEITHAUSER, AND MANY MORE)

Throughout the last decade, the enigmatic and often elusive Cass McCombs has been established as one of our generation’s premier songwriters. With a rich catalog of universally acclaimed records by critics, fans, and fellow musicians alike, his craft has honed finer with each subsequent release. It’s a career that has twisted and turned, from style to subject, both between records and within them. After releasing five studio albums, a variety of singles, and a compilation via Domino Records, McCombs has signed to ANTI, a welcoming home to one of the greatest songwriters of our time, alongside other iconic individualists, such as Tom Waits and Wilco. News of McCombs’ eighth studio full-length and debut for ANTI will be announced in the weeks to come.

For those unfamiliar with McCombs, those wanting a refresher, or already beloved fans, The Talkhouse presents A Cass McCombs Primer. This special playlist has been curated by contemporaries of McCombs, including Jim James, Jenny Lewis, Angel Olsen, Sondre Lerche, Hamilton Leithauser, members of The War On Drugs, The National, Grizzly Bear, Vampire Weekend, Guster, Blake Mills, Okkervil River, Lucius, Beirut, Heartless Bastards, Allah-Lahs, Dr. Dog, Phish and more.

Cass McCombs will play select shows in Europe in June, including Primavera Sound and Field Day. All dates are below.
