Published Aug 27, 2014Cass McCombs recently announced he was heading out on tour with veteran alt-punk outfit Meat Puppets, but sadly the trip doesn't make it into Canada. On the plus side, they've now revealed plans to deliver a split 7-inch together, with each act previewing a contribution ahead of the October 28 due date through Domino.
McCombs' "Night of the World" glides by on a tumbleweed, with the dusty arrangement presenting supple six-string work and low-key lines from McCombs about being "tied up in a bind." You can hear the track down below, while a second song called "Evangeline" will appear on the record.
Meat Puppets are streaming their cover of Texas Tornados' "(Hey Baby), Que Paso," a way-down-south whipcracker that busts out lightning quick, countrified licks, a one-two polka beat and vocal melodies galore from the Kirkwood brothers. The track can likewise be heard down below, with a cover of "Cathy's Clown" by the Everly Brothers arriving on the single proper.
You'll find the info on the acts' shared dates over here.
