Cass McCombs - "Sacred Heart"

I've been digging through Cass McCombs' back catalogue of late and was reminded me of his stellar Smiths and Cure recalling turn, "Sacred Heart." Originally released in 2004 as a 7" on 4AD and then again in 2005 on McCombs' sophomore LP, PREfection, the track is a rare bit of uptempo driving pop from the nomadic artist. Once you get past all the blissful shimmering guitars and racing drums, there's Cass's one-of-a-kind lyricism: at first depicting romantic and picturesque imagery of the Sacred Heart church, and later the melodramatic goings on of a funeral, and my personal favorite line—"Cinderella's in the doghouse."

You can find the vinyl on Discogs
