Watch Cass McCombs Play "Windfall" with a Rostam Batmanglij-ified String Section






One day, many years from now, people will begin to sit down together, stroke their chins and collectively agree that Mr. Cass McCombs' third LP, Dropping The Writ, is a masterstroke. Because it is. We talk about it too much around here, to be totally honest. That record's finest song, "Windfall", hasn't (until very recently) been included in his setlists, so imagine how moved we were the moment we stumbled across this beautifully shot, Eli Gunn-Jones-directed footage of Cass and crew playing the song alongside a string section arranged by Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij, a big fan. It was as quiet and intense as a freakout can be.
