When you watch the new video for the Pixies’ track Magdalena, off the band’s surprise four-track album, EP2, the meaning behind the lyrics “Magalena, you’re the meanest,” becomes instantly clear. The video chronicles performance artist Nando Messias as she wakes up, approaches a man eating, kisses him, beats him up and takes his sandwich, eats it, showers in rice and has a one-woman egg race. It’s all very bizarre, but beautiful and haunting in its own way. Judy Jacob, who worked with the Pixies’ on their Doolittle tour, directs. You can watch the video below.
