The third of four videos from Cass McCombs recent album Big Wheel and Others that will be appearing in the first month of 2014 debuts today and it’s the second collaboration between McCombs and director Eric Fensler, who previously worked together on the poignant video for McCombs’s “You Saved My Life.”
Fensler explains the details behind “Unearthed”: “The story of the video is simply up to the viewer to discover and interpret. The visual accompaniment to the song wasn’t made to be explained in a press release, sorry. Lets all have a little mystery for once. I suggest simply putting some headphones on or go home and go full screen on that totally kick-ass home theater system you have and relax for three minutes to a cogitative music video. Hopefully it will make you stop and think for a moment.”
In his 4-out-of-5-stars review of Big Wheel, our own Mike Shanley enthused, “McCombs’ mood stays at a slow burn for most of the album, but the band goes from subtle acoustics to full-blown Crazy Horse style guitars, with some free saxophone shrieks added for extra drama… McCombs pulls off the rare feat of a double-disc that never runs short on inspiration or steam.”
