Cass McCombs To Release’A Folk Set Apart: Rarities, B-Sides & Space Junk’ Dec. 11

December 11th marks the release of A Folk Set Apart: Rarities, B-Sides & Space Junk, Etc., an alternate retelling of the last decade in the life of  Cass McCombs.

This collection of songs have been unearthed from the so-called underground – culled from the various limited, rare sources from which they were initially released on different independent labels on both sides of the pond, now compiled by Domino. For the past decade, most of these have been next to impossible to find, and for the first time are now readily available. Many were first unveiled as split 7”s, only sold at shows, whose artist pairings are as diverse as McCombs’ own musical tendencies: e.g. Meat Puppets (“Evangeline,”“Night of the World”), Michael Hurley (“Three Men Sitting On A Hollow Log”) and White Magic (“If You Loved Me Before”).

A Folk Set Apart includes 19 songs (19 on CD, 11 on LP + 8 digital bonus tracks) all remastered for this release. Five of these songs are previously unreleased. The LP is a single vinyl in a gatefold jacket, which includes a printed inner sleeve and an MP3 download card.

McCombs will be playing a string of US dates in the coming weeks. October sees him open for Kurt Vile on the West Coast, and November he’ll be opening for My Morning Jacket on one night of their four-night run at New York’s famed Beacon Theatre. Details below.
