Track of the Day: Cass McCombs

A little Monday morning romance for you. The best track off Chicago troubadour Cass McCombs' new album Catacombs is a dreamy ditty called "Dreams Come True Girl." The song opens with McCombs pining for a lover who melts away "all the troubles in my past." With a woo-worthy chorus of "you're not my dream girl, you're not my reality girl, you're my dreams come true girl," the lyrics are sweetly sentimental, especially set to a slow, kicky beat.

The song has already slipped its way into the set list of local band Girls, whose romance-laced, cosmic pop is a good fit for McComb's tune.

Check out the original McCombs "Dreams Come True Girl" here.

And here's a (very glitchy) recording of Girls doing the same song.

(By the way, McCombs and Girls perform together at Great American on Sept. 9)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
