I've become somewhat fascinated by Cass McCombs. His sound is unique and poetic, reminding me of something from the 60s or 70s. After reading up on him I learned that he has led a nomadic existence for most of his adult life, crashing on couches and moving from one city to the next. He prefers staying out of the limelight, making him fairly anonymous and mysterious.
You can listen to his entire album, Big Wheels and Others, here on NPR. It's due out next Tuesday, October 15th.
