PIXIES UNVEIL “MAGDELENA” VIDEO: “A BLUES-SHAPE WITH A BEATLES-ESQUE LEFT TURN”

Pixies-2014Check out this provocative video, conceived and directed by Judy Jacob, for Pixies’ “Magdelena”. The video features innovative British dance/theatre/performance artist Nando Messias.

“Magdelena” is the second video from Pixies’ EP-2, released on January 3, and the song, as the band’s Black Francis explains, is “basically a blues-shape with a Beatles-esque left turn, and a lot of Pixies-referential lyrics.”

“EP-2” is available exclusively on the band’s website – pixiesmusic.com – as a DDL (mp3 only), lossless DDL, limited edition 10-inch vinyl, and as part of special bundles. “EP-2” features special artwork designed by Vaughan Oliver at v23

Here’s the excellent “Blue-Eyed Hexe”.

Pixies are currently in the midst of the North American leg of their 2013-2014 world tour.
