i love my job
It's been raining for what seems like an eternity in Carbondale. All this means is I am constantly listening to depressing songs, because that's just what you do when it rains.
Nothing is stopping me from putting on Big Star or something, but cloudy skies and never-ending rain bring out the sad bastard music.
My artist of choice this week has been Cass McCombs. The singer-songwriter's 2009 release Catacombs is a super dark record. The songs are sparse, even when there are numerous instruments being utilized. Each artist is playing his or her part with a hushed intimacy, only adding to McCombs' near whisper vocals.
This is the second in two superb videos created from album tracks, check it out and hate the rain with me.
