CURRENT: Cass McCombs – “Opposite House”

Cass McCombs is about as dependable as you can get for an indie singer-songwriter. His music has an effortless quality to it, as if writing three-minute song were as natural as breathing for McCombs. He’s back with a new album – Mangy Love – and he’s shared the album cut “Opposite House” ahead of its release. The song is a thing of beauty, the audio equivalent to a slow-motion black-and-white montage set on the beach. McCombs’ guitar riff anchors the track and Angel Olsen’s backing vocals gives it an extra lift. “Opposite House” isn’t the type of song that will hit you at once; it reveals itself slowly, showing you more upon every return.

Mangy Love is out August 26 via Anti-.
