Tip of the Sphere is Cass McCombs’s ninth studio album.
While many of Cass McCombs’s records have been comprised of songs recorded in different studios and pieced together over time, this one was recorded quickly in one location with a strong sense of purpose, resulting in his most consistent record to date. This approach brings a raw immediacy to his songs, which are some of his best yet as he finds the perfect balance of compassion and experimentation. The rock songs rock harder, the ballads are more beautiful, the experiments more confident; with the sounds of jazz and latin music creeping in through the back window. This is an artist trying to make sense of it all through a relentless, ever searching creative process.
