“Classic Masher” is one of the tracks getting the best reception off Pixies’ newest album Head Carrier. Today the band released a stop-motion, vintage video for the song.
True to the title, the visual features lots of mashing mouths: opening and closing lips painted on a piano and zoomed-in shots of women’s fidgeting lips and teeth. There’s no clear narrative, but the sepia-toned images are compellingly eccentric.
