Yeah I can't stop playing it. Also I think it finally just don donned me of the double meaning in the line "we're all over the world". Great song.

i don’t know much about his music/not much of a fan but i caught his show a couple days ago. full band, actually a lil jammy for my tastes but i still enjoyed it. had a dude on sax come up for a few songs, that was rad

i'm pretty amped for the frothy pit

Country singer Wynonna Judd has shared a new song co-written with Cass McCombs. It’s called “The Child” and you can hear it below. In addition to the new song, Judd and McCombs will perform under the monicker The Frothy Pit at this year’s AMERICANAFEST at Nashville’s Mercy Lounge on Thursday, September 12.

Of the collaboration, McCombs writes, “Like many people, I grew up listening to The Judds. Needless to say, it’s been a real honor to collaborate with Wynonna, co-writing ‘The Child’ together and stepping into the uncharted terrain of The Frothy Pit.” Judd commented, “Getting to work with artists like Cass McCombs has broadened my musical horizons and made me even more grateful that even after 35 years I still love the creative process.”

Cass McCombs released his latest album, Tip of the Sphere, earlier this year. A poetry book is on the way. Wynonna & The Big Noise’s self-titled album arrived in 2016.

Oh hell yeah that's great to hear that they're doing stuff together again. That Cass tour many years ago when Blake was in the band was sick.

Blake Mills knows that coastline in flames well.

Born in Santa Monica and raised in Malibu, the songwriter and star producer, once called "the last guitarist I heard that I thought was phenomenal" by Eric Clapton, is conditioned to months of perpetually balmy days, interrupted with occasional downpours as fall slides into winter. But a few years ago that rain was slow to come, and the landscape around Los Angeles felt like a tinderbox. When, at last, storms arrived, a friend joked to Mills that maybe it would be the last rain ever for Los Angeles. The storm's petrichor, Mills remembers, smelled of nostalgia.

Mills sat down at his piano and began to ponder what that might mean. The result — a sobering, tender ballad called "Summer All Over" — teeters at the threshold of hope and despair. With his sigh caked on the keys like mud at the bottom of some drought-devastated lake, Mills tempers his quiet horror by "looking for laughter, looking for kindness," for any human quality that aims to right our colossal wrongs. Mills captures that seesaw of feelings musically with a pervasive flicker of melodic dissonance. Electronics drift in the background, like smog hovering above a troubled valley.

"Writing about the season of summer inherently evokes a Beach Boys vibe, maybe because I'm in Los Angeles," says Mills, who penned the song with Cass McCombs and hopes to release it on his third album. "But the implication of the warmest season happening all over the world at the same time is an 'endless summer.' "

He notes the sad irony of a term that, less than 50 years ago, belonged to a relatively carefree Beach Boys collection. But "Summer All Over," an enticing title that suggests burnished bodies on a California shoreline, is tragically beautiful, a warm hug from an old ghost. Rock and roll can't be all good times on the bleeding edge of environmental ruin.

i know i've shared this mix a few times on the board but damn it's destroying me rn again
it's the Domino Radio Cass Rarities/B-Sides mix c. 2011-12 (i think)

the live arrangement of "city of brotherly love" at the end is so sick
