Cass McCombs Humor Risk on LP + Download Card
Humor Risk is the second 2011 release from the prolific Cass McCombs. The album was recorded in various homes and studios in California, New York, New Jersey and Chicago, and was produced by Cass McCombs and Ariel Rechtshaid, with whom he created Wit's End (2011) and Catacombs (2009).
Musically, Humor Risk 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. The release portrays yet another facade of this versatile, incredibly talented and much underrated artist.
