Cass McCombs, whose mother babysat me in the early Seventies, delivers his magnum opus on October’s Big Wheel and Others (Domino), LP lucky No. 7. From the brutal whimsy of “Morning Star” and steel-lined delicacy of “Brighter!” – revisited by the late actress Karen Black on the second CD – to drug comas (“Dealing”) and restless hookers (“Satan Is My Toy”), the double album bottles his best work, the voice finally front and center. The nine-minute “Everything Has to Be Just-So” recalls his early free moans, but McCombs verges on greatness. Pink Nasty opens.
