Cass McCombs "A"

Cass McCombs deserves more attention: he's a great musician. Inovating in the folk and alt country fields, this album has received critical acclaim (the album he released in 2007, "Dropping the Writ" was nominated by Amazon as one of 2007's best albums too). Oh, you should also check his official website for some more info, perhaps.
The track list is the following:
  1. "I Went to the Hospital" - 5:14
  2. "Bobby, King of Boys Town" - 3:47
  3. "What Isn't Nature" - 4:48
  4. "Aids in Africa" - 5:42
  5. "A Comedian Is Someone Who Tells Jokes" - 3:30
  6. "Gee, It's Good to Be Back Home" - 2:59
  7. "Meet Me Here at Dawn" - 3:39
  8. "When the Bible Was Wrote" - 4:06
  9. "My Pilgrim Dear" - 4:50
  10. "Bedding Down Post Xmas Time" - 3:54
  11. "My Master" - 4:20
My favourite tracks are: "What Isn't Nature", "My Master" and "Aids in Africa". The album's lenght is around 47 minutes, I think. It was released on Monitor Records (now he's signed to Domino Records, by the way).
I got to know this artist's music thanks to a pro skateboarder's part in a video of the DVS Shoe Company. The song that played on the pro's [Jason Dill] part was "What Isn't Nature" and it imediatly got stuck in my head. It's original, authentic and seems to be lost in many musical genres, being a misfit among folk music. It's melodic and melancholic and somewhat nostalgic too.
Just listen to the album by downloading it right here.

You can hear the song "What Isn't Nature" next, as a preview do Cass' music (in case you didn't know it):
