EMA – “Down And Out” Video

It’s only going to be about another month before EMA comes out with her new album Exile In The Outer Ring, and today, she’s shared a video for “Down And Out,” the broke-folks lament that she shared last month. The clip, from director Alicia J. Rose, features Erika M. Anderson, but its real star is performance artist Taj Bourgeois, who spends the entire clip doing weird shit to his face to make it look weird. He wraps tape all around his head, he smashes a lemon into his forehead a bunch of times before eating it, he spits out egg yolk and eggshell. The video is both funny and extremely gross, and you can watch it below, via NPR.

Exile In The Outer Ring is out 8/25 on City Slang.
