Almost all of the video for “Unearthed,” a ghostly acoustic blues song from Cass McCombs’s new double album Big Wheel And Others, is a single serene shot of clouds billowing across a mountaintop. But when that show changes — and I don’t want to spoil how it changes — it forever alters the entire tone of the video, and maybe of the song too. Eric Fensler directed the video, and it follows McCombs’s videos for the Big Wheel songs “Morning Star,” “Big Wheel,” and “Brighter!” If you’re watching it close enough, it’s a remarkable, disquieting piece of work. It’s below.
