[Video] Cass McCombs: “Big Wheel”

Early this week, Cass McCombs premiered the new music video for “Big Wheel,” a track off his latest album, Big Wheel and Others. Though labeling Big Wheel an album is somewhat of an understatement. This 22- song masterpiece explores the mind and world of McCombs, emulating a variety of different styles from blues to country.

The video, shot by Cass’s close friend and collaborator, Albert Herter, presents clashing and vivid imagery, complimenting and colliding with the soothing and subtle sound of Cass’s voice and style. Check out the video and   upcoming tour dates to catch Cass McCombs live.
