McCombs, Cass - Mangy LoveVendor: Anti/Epitaph
NEW VINYL LP ON ANTI/EPITAPH 2016
2 X 180 GRAM VINYL
Eighth studio full-length album, Mangy Love, is McCombs at his most blunt: tackling sociopolitical issues through his uniquely cracked lens of lyrical wit and singular insight.
Throughout, he uses himself as a mirror to misguided and confounding realities, confronting them head on. The severity of his lyrics is contrasted by the music, which ventures into groovy realms of Philly soul, Norcal psychedelia and New York paranoia, articulating the spontaneity and joy of his live show better than ever before. Hip-hop and Beat poetry influences have never been more evident, with several songs employing a speech-style and clever fast-paced wordplay.
