Cass McCombs released his great new album, Mangy Love, back in August via ANTI- (his first for the label). Now he has shared a video for “Laughter Is the Best Medicine.” Andrew Costigan directed the video, which features New Orleans cult legend Reverend Goat Carson. Watch it below via Brooklyn Vegan (who premiered it), followed by his upcoming tour dates.

Costigan had this to say about the video to Brooklyn Vegan: “I was fortunate to meet Reverend Goat Carson during a road trip to New Orleans several years ago with Cass. I was struck by his energy, humility, and intelligence throughout the time visiting with him, and we became friends. Subsequently, I helped Goat make some videos for his own music, as well as capture some of his wisdom and work in the world on camera.

“When Cass asked me to make this video, I was excited. It became an opportunity to experiment with video, and try to visualize the song and some of the dialogue I’d had with Goat and Cass in a far out way. It is such a great song, with so many compelling musical moments and lyrics, I had a lot to think about and choices to make. This is what came out, and as Goat says, ‘it is what it is.’”
