If you’ve watched enough skateboarding videos, you’ve probably come to expect certain things on the soundtrack, like bruising hardcore or breezy rap. So it’s a welcome juxtaposition to see skating footage set to “Morning Star,” a softly gorgeous new song from softly-gorgeous-song specialist Cass McCombs. The song’s video, from director Patrick O’Dell, cobbles together a whole lot of old skateboarding footage — some of it ancient, almost all of it gorgeous. If you pay enough attention to that corner of the world, you may see some familiar faces. Watch it below.
No word on a new Cass McCombs album yet, but I could really go for a new Cass McCombs album right now.
