Cass McCombs+Lightspeed Champion
A real musician's-musician type, Cass McCombs makes intriguing singer-songwriter records that replace guy-with-guitar earnestness with a sense of art-school mystery; he definitely seems to mean what he sings, but you're never quite sure what it is that he means. Lightspeed Champion's latest revealed a welcome transition from Bright Eyes-style indie folk to zippy, post-Beck eclectica. With Melanie Moser & the 11th Hour Band.
