Brooklyn-based record label and art collective Famous Class’s latest split 7-inch features Cass McCombs and White Magic. Cass’s tune delivers a proper dose of McCombsian brooding and the piano on White Magic’s contribution is sort of upbeat, almost as if White Magic wrote the theme song for Charlie Brown on the moon.
