During the 1990's, McCombs played in countless bands at various DIY spaces in the Bay Area and the Pacific Northwest until he relocated to New York.

On his first trip to Europe in 2003, he recorded a Peel Session for John Peel, who described McCombs' music as "unobtrusively brilliant".

In 2004, he performed at the UK's All Tomorrow's Parties and in 2005 released his second album PREfection on Monitor Records in the US and 4AD in Europe. In 2005 he toured with Modest Mouse. In 2007, Dropping the Writ was released on Domino Records and McCombs toured with Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti. Domino Records would release his next four albums: Catacombs (2009), which was voted one of the "50 Top Albums on the Year" by Pitchfork; Wit's End (2011); Humor Risk (2011), Big Wheel and Others (2013).

In 2012, McCombs toured with John Cale and performed at Occupy Sandy, a benefit for the storm's victims. That same year, McCombs premiered his song, "Bradley Manning" on the Democracy Now News Hour.
