Music Video: Go skating with the kids in Cass McCombs’ Morning Star

When you make songs as beautiful as those of Cass McCombs you don’t want to go messing everything up and getting a dodgy video to accompany it. So when the time comes to put visuals to your melodies, you’d better give Patrick O’Dell a call and employ his youth-bringing lens to bring your song to life. In this case, Patrick has made a dreamy collage of old skateboarding clips from the days of yore, blending into each other in an endearingly home-made, double-exposure kind of way. Something about the combination of Cass’ nap-inducing voice and the footage of those kids swerving down suburban roads is enough to send you off a good old float down daydream river. See you later.
