Some press previews for the record:
"If you don’t know McCombs, and you reckon there must be someone out there as great as Bill Callahan (and better than Will Oldham) in the Americana Gothic racks, then Cass is your man."
"The Same Thing," the first video from the record, establishes the disc's intriguing blend of dark folk melodies and tuneful, organ-centric psychedelia."
"Shaking off the weights that seemingly bound him during the making of 'Wit's End' the songwriter is pushing ahead with his life."
"While Humor Risk less instantly memorable than Wit’s End, it’s a lot easier to digest and is probably the record you’ll end up spinning most out of the two. Placed together, the pair stand as a neat assessment of McCombs’ silky talent to combine gloom with old country glamour."
