Cass McCombs takes on the government, corporations with new song “Run Sister Run” — listen

The second preview of his forthcoming LP, Mangy Love

    Mangy Love is the forthcoming ANTI- Records debut from Cass McCombs. Set to land in stores later this summer, the 12-track effort is being previewed this week with “Run Sister Run”.

    Highlighted by a lively, fluid rhythm, it sees the alt folk songwriter using elements of hip-hop and Beat poetry to critique corporate money hoarders and the racially charged shootings in Ferguson, Missouri. A press release details further:

    “The political impact of corporate greed and bias appear all throughout Mangy Love, but are most bluntly tackled in this new single, titled as a mantra for a misogynistic justice system. Inspired by Occupy Wall Street protester Cecily McMillan, who was imprisoned for defending herself against police, the song jabs at the Supreme Court, calling it the ‘highest authority…on Cheez Whiz.'”

    Mangy Love arrives on August 26th. It was produced Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, FIDLAR) and Dan Horne and features guest contributions from Angel Olsen and Blake Mills. For more, hear lead single “Opposite House”.
