The Pixies have been releasing a steady stream of new material for the past year, and they're showing no signs of slowing. Today, the band released a music video for "Magdalena," a track from their recent EP-2.
The video is a dark, gender-bending story set to Black Francis' transparent, reverb-drenched vocals. The guitar drones in the background while the protagonist -- played by British choreographer Nando Messias -- beats the shit out of some guy, eats a gyro, takes a rice shower, and is the sole participant and winner of an egg-and-spoon race. Watch above.
