  1. This guy is a musical genius

  2. some wisdom here – but so strange watching this on an MTV platform.

  3. There is a lot of soulless music being shoveled out to the masses but there is also a lot of great writers and musicians producing plenty to feed our souls and give us joy. You just have to look for it.

    MTV: do a better job of promoting more people such as Cass McCombs

  4. Why so many dislikes? Normies? Probably.

  5. Cass is a brilliant song writer. If you ever get the chance to see this guy play live, do it – he is awesome.

  6. what a fuckin wanky thing for the dude who wrote a song as campy and exaggerated as "rancid girl"….plenty of people are writing from the heart. just coz something's campy doesn't mean it's real. fellow pitchfork-loved father john misty is pretty fucking campy and cheesy, but that sounds like its from the heart to me…i dunno. i don't like his music, and i really want to, but when he's slagging off others as if he's one of the only "genuine" musicians out there…i dunno, fuck you man

  7. Hard times for music today, true. At least we have Cass, Deerhunter, Mac deMarco and some other honest artists. But I don't care, don't give a fuck about all this bling bling shit worried about instagram fights or bad-made electronic crap. My vinyl collection will be with me forever and growing slowly with some new stuff.

  8. maybe the fact that mtv only promotes bad music they created this bullshit the 90s to midst 2005 were still good now u cant compare this 90%of music today is garbage

  9. So many have been taken from us this year ..the passing of Bowie and other great talent.

    I only found Cass this last few week's and man it's a great feeling.

    Jaco would dig that bass player too 😉
    Key's and drum's too pressing all my button's man.

  10. MTV News: The biggest hypocrites on planet Earth. Making a video about what is wrong with today's music but promotes puppet singers like Brittany Spears, Beyonce, and Rihanna.
