On the surface, Cass McCombs and the Meat Puppets might sound like a strange pairing, but both acts frame their keen, outsider insights amid unique artistry. But it is a strange pairing and their upcoming tour together promises to be the best kind of weird.
Perhaps in a way to memorialize the unlikely pairing, Domino Records is producing a 7" album (out on 10/28) with two new cuts from McCombs and two new covers from the Meat Puppets.
Stream a sample of the 7" below and be sure to catch them if the tour rolls through your zipcode.
