My reaction when I received this album in the mail was pretty much the exact same reaction I have had from each person since showing this album….”Wait, there’s a new Pixies album?” As they are one of my best friends favorite band and they are just absolute legends in general, I had to get this puppy into the station. The description of the album says it was only recorded in three weeks, but it still contains just what you would expect from a Pixies album. The album is hard, with glistening guitar riffage, sun-soaked harmonies, and lyrical intrigue; which leaves me reminiscent of old-school Pixies music. Hopefully the next time they come through to Vermont, I won’t end up missing them.
