New Pixies single & album

So, they're back for.. what, the 3rd new album since they reformed? New single from the upcoming LP out today:

Eh... it's not absolutely shit, I guess. Sounds more immediately Pixies-esque than a lot of their post-reformation work. The verses approximate the band pretty well then the chorus sort of falls a bit flat. Out of all the acts I grew up with who've reformed they've always been one of the trickier propositions. So of their time, so influential - occupying such a unique spot in teenage hearts. It was a treat to hear the old hits for a good few years but this new stuff just hasn't had any consistent spark or life to, even leaving aside the Kim Deal situation.


Glebe

  • Cheers, thanks mate, nice one.

It's not bad, sounds a bit early-Pixiesish (with a tiny bit of a Sonic Youth vibe?). Indie Cindy was pretty good, and I have Head Carrier on CD, but I never really got round to listening to it, the singles were decent though. I kind of lost interest after Kim did a bunk, although to be fair Paz has settled in nicely (after Kim Shattuck's awkward stint).

Yeah, it's a gothier 'Sugar Cane' to my ears.

I think it's a decent song albeit with a weak chorus.

Cafish Kate has the potential to be one of my favourite ever songs, very catchy. As far as the previous two albums go I think Plaster of Paris tops everything: short, sweet and fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vI9ivJ276Xg

I'd forgotten about that one, it does have a lovely chorus.

I preferred Motherbanger.
