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

Posted by Liv Siddall,

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.
