Baltimore-based singer/songwriter Cass McCombs makes glum but humourous music. Styles range from the anxious dronals of the Velvet Underground to lonesome hollowed out basement folk with many turns in between. On his most recent effort there is a prevalance of 1980s influence a la Morrissey. His lyrical style is vivid and weary, but will often drift into the high-spirited and whimsical. Signed to 4AD.
