the art historian's mixtape

The first time I saw Un Chien Andalou, I was a senior in college. It was 9am, I was in my Modern Art art history class, and I was clinging to my cup of coffee as if it were a life raft. It was too early, and the eyeball scene was a little much.
The first time I heard the Pixies, I was at a frat party. The music was loud, the room was smoky and dirty. I couldn't quite make out the song, but I liked it, and more importantly, I could dance to it.
In honor of late college evenings, and mornings powered by coffee, I give you The Pixies' Debaser, as this week's track on the art historian's mixtape.
