Cass McCombs — Humor Risk (Nov 7th, 2011)

 Cass McCombs — Humor Risk (Nov 7th, 2011)               Cass McCombs — Humor Risk 
Location: USA
Born: 1977 in Concord, California, USA
Genres: Rock, Folk, Punk
Instruments: Vocals, Guitar, Piano, various
Album release: November 7, 2011
Record Label: Domino (http://www.dominorecordco.com)
Recorded: in various homes and studios in California, New York, New Jersey and Chicago.
♦   Cass McCombs is to release his second album this year, Humor Risk. The album is an attempt at laughter instead of confusion, chaos instead of morality, or, as fellow Northern Californian Jack London said, “I would rather be ashes than dust!”. ♦   Musically, it is more rhythm–based, tempos swifter to nearly rocking, than the sparse Wit’s End. Infectious melodies are outlined by a wry lyricism that expresses the stories of characters from McCombs’ native land. Rather than fulfilling the stereotype of the confessional singer–songwriter, he describes the lifestyles and feelings of those that surround him, with more love than judgment: drugs, Scientology, Western America, and so on, in allegorical form. Humor Risk portrays yet another face of this versatile and much underrated artist. Humor Risk portrays yet another façade of this versatile, incredibly talented and much underrated artist.
