    A Folk Set Apart

    Cass McCombs' new anthology, A Folk Set Apart, is subtitled "Rarities, B-Sides & Space
    Junk, Etc." which is, on the surface, true but it's so much more than that. It's an alternate
    retelling of the last decade and a half of an enigmatic career built on immaculate
    songwriting but short on "breakthrough success." While it contains none of McCombs'
    better known songs from his seven full-lengths, he would have you believe this is his favorite
    album.


    The compilation starts off with the very first song to be released by McCombs, "I Cannot
    Lie" and, as is the case with many of McCombs gems, is told in the first person. Often, the
    temptation is to assume the autobiographical with McCombs and long-time fans surely have
    formed some mental picture of the elusive musician, but to do so would be to proceed at
    your own risk. McCombs knows his mythology is littered with misdirects, rumors and half
    truths and quite frankly none of our business.


    And McCombs is right, actually. In spite of its compilation status, nineteen tracks in all . This very well
    may be the most compelling album he's released, not because the original albums are
    lacking in their own charms, but there is something fascinating in the sprawl: chugging lo-fi,
    downtrodden gems, rambling rave-ups, political anthems, lysergic outtakes, wistful laments
    and an appropriate bookend on our own decade-long professional relationship with one of
    the greatest songwriters of the 21st Century. Fare thee well, Cass.
