A vampire’s bite, aerial cityscapes and a snake’s darting tongue are just a few of the scenes that make up this new video for singer-songwriter Cass McCombs’ “Big Wheel.” The bizarre and chaotic vibe of the video, like in the kaleidoscopic treatment of a painting shown here, nicely contrasts the sober tone of the song. Lyrics, which meditate on masculinity and society, merge the visuals and instrumentation with beautifully written lines like “Small wheel runs by faith/Big wheel runs by grace.” Pick up the album Big Wheel and Others from iTunes.
