Pixes in Northhampton, MA in January (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
Pixies

After touring their college radio hits for a decade and teasing with a few new singles, Pixies have announced their first "new" album since 1991's Trompe Le Monde. The album is titled Indie Cindy (which is also the name of a song) and will be out April 29 via their own Pixiesmusic label. The record was produced by longtime associate Gil Norton, who worked on everything from Doolittle on, and features cover art by legendary designer Vaughn Oliver who did all their classic sleeves.

Before you get too excited, you may have heard all the songs already. The album is comprised of "Bagboy," which was the band's first new song in more than a decade, plus the eight tracks from the band's EP-1 and EP-2, as well as the songs from the just-released EP-3 which also has "Bagboy" on it. (Bassist listed on the liner notes is "Ding.") But for those who wanted all those in one place, your wish is granted.

The new album comes in a variety of formats, including a Special Edition in a gatefold double-vinyl, and a CD/40-page book with a bonus live disc recorded during their just-finished tour (with Paz Lenchantin on bass). Pre-order those here. There's an iTunes version with the live show as well. Plus, Indie City is coming out as a Record Store Day, limited edition, two-disc, deluxe gatefold, 180-gram vinyl set -- whether that's the same as the Special Edition minus the book/live disc is unclear.

Please tell me you work for the Pixies or just trolling. If you were honest in that comment, may i suggest you attempt to drown or asphyxiate yourself.

Those ep's are garbage

It's almost impressive that a band could fall off this hard.

I will buy this. Those songs live were entirely different from the static recording.

I've heard rumors that they've ventured into performance art in testing fans' patience. Most of us gave up at Bam Thwok... speaking of, where is BAM THWOK?!?!? I can't wait to not buy this and not buy the special special Bam edition.

This would be money better spent on the new Muffs album.

Charging $60 per ticket and they still need to release this?

Didn't know they were that broke.

Posted by Anonymous | March 24, 2014 2:09 PM

pixies don't need a (to quote the endless loser hipsters here) 'cash grab.'

pixies are not broke.

pixies are better than any band any loser on this site likes.

losers on this site must be dying inside every time a pixies show sells out (and they all do).

imagine how empty the loser's lives are that they post endlessly about a band they're either too young, stupid or ignorant to grasp?

i can only hope their juvenile and narcissistic comments keep them warm at night.

Anyone know the name of the temp agency they use to staff new bassists?

Blah Blah, spout all that nonsense you want. Who cares that the shows are sold out. You a fucking rocket scientist to realize that this is trading in nostalgia.

Yes genius, Pixies were a great band. Let me see you sit with a straight face and try to say that any of this new material is any fucking good or worthy of the old songs.

2:18 is interesting because I'd have thought all of the Pixies' moms would be too old figure out how to post things. Nice job!

@ 1:11, they didn't kick her out, you fucking moron. She left because she knew the songs were shit and she didn't want to waste more years of her life in a supporting role next to that bald, meanspirited schlub.

"Ding" is Simon "Dingo" Archer, former bassist for The Fall and PJ Harvey.

Saying that you were formally in The Fall is like saying that you have formally eaten a slice of pizza.

Has anyone heard from Mr. FF? He added an interesting component to this place. City stuff!

"And topping the list of least essential album releases of 2014 comes Indie Cindy from the Pixies! Featuring 12 stunningly mediocre previously-released tracks guaranteed to let down even the most ardent Pixies fan of yore! This limp turd will be released in numerous 'special' formats so that beard-boys across America with too much disposable income will just have to fork over loads of their parents' dough to have them all. Why? Who knows? But from his seat in the hell of avarice P.T. Barnum is nodding appreciatively at the achievements of his worthy disciple Charles Thompson."

Pixies are doing fine playing secondary markets and making secondary music. Kim Deal has her own band, I have no idea why she would want to be involved in this.

Agree or no? Please reply in same, uniform format.

218 I saw the Pixies back in the 80s. They are nowhere as good a band as back then. These new songs are terrible. And without Kim they have lost most of their personality.

223 The term "indie" has been meaningless for many, many years now.

indie shitty

Posted by buttcock | March 25, 2014 4:11 PM

For those of you slagging off Indie Cindie, there were some of us who were around at the time Trompe le Monde was released who have heard it all before. That was a good album and so is the latest. Not as amazing as the first three but still great. More experimentation; some Fall spoken/ranting influence. Get out of your pathetic little formulaic "rawk" refuges for a while and open your minds to something new!

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2014 4:30 PM

...and let's not forget that Bossanova was poor by Pixies standards - Indie Cindie is much better.
