The "legendary" Cass McCombs is out with a protest song-story about Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier facing trial starting Dec. 16 for giving information to WikiLeaks. The McCombs version of Manning's ride from boy to soldier to prisoner is an engaging listen, like a somber, civic-minded "Rocky Racoon." McCombs is making no bones about his intended audience -- he premiered "Bradley Manning" in a performance for Democracy Now. Stream the old-fashioned lefty rouser (this is no "Freedom Walk") below.
