Cass McCombs – “Name Written In Water” Video
Cass McCombs’s 2013 double album Big Wheel And Others has already yielded a truly strange parade of music videos: for “Morning Star,” “Big Wheel,” “Brighter!,” and the all-time what-the-fuck-did-I-just-watch champion “Unearthed.” And now director Jeffrey Peixoto has come up with a fun treatment of the jaunty tune “Name Written In Water”: Two minutes and 48 seconds of straight pig butchery! The entire video seems geared toward making sure you never eat pork again, and maybe in forcing you to throw up whatever bacon you might’ve eaten for breakfast this morning. I made it maybe 30 seconds in, so maybe it turns into a beautiful parable of love afterwards, but I doubt it. If you’ve got the stomach for it, it’s below.
Big Wheel And Others is out now on Domino.
