Cass McCombs New Video: You Saved My Life

Cass McCombs has already received positive accolades for his recently released album Catacombs and the LP's first single "You Saved My Life." The single, which has a video to support, stars an undoubted McCombs as he weaves his way through a crowd that's most likely there to see his show, or for some kind of beer/food festival. Judging from the age range, I'll go with the latter.

Andrew Bird on Conan

For those that may have missed it, here's Andrew Bird's performance of "Oh No" on The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien off of Bird's Spring release Noble Beast. The song features the now more than regular exceptional whistling of the Chicago native, along with the frequent brass horns placed in the back of every Bird live performance.

Hope Sandoval and Generationals

Thanks to My Old Kentucky Blog, two new songs from Hope Sandoval and Generationals have found their way to me.

For those who don't know, Hope Sandoval is the lead singer of Mazzy Starr. The new Sadoval side-project features the efforts of The Warm Inventions, that also includes Colm Ó Cíosóig from My Bloody Valentine on the drums. You can expect the album out September 15.

Riceboy Sleeps

Apologies for the supremely long holiday break for any one who reads this. I really should be more prompt.

Anyway, Jonsi Birgisson, the lead singer of Icelandic super-outfit Sigur Ros released the single "Boy 1904" from his side project Jonsi & Alex, and their debut album Riceboy Sleeps. The album is due out July 20 and 21 in the U.S.

Interesting fact about "Boy 1904"; according to Chris at Gorilla vs. Bear it features the only recording in existence of the last castrato singer.
