Ok, so I never thought I would pick a Pixies song for Track of the Day. Not that I don’t like the Pixies, I do. And I obviously knew they had reformed and released a couple of new albums. But like most people, I suspect, I kind of figured they were past their absolute best.
How wrong was I? This is, I think, one of the best tracks they’ve ever recorded. And I say that as someone who thinks ‘Here Comes Your Man’ is one of the best songs ever written. I love it. Is it a bit more mellow than usual? Possibly. It’s certainly less atonal and spiky, but that bassline and guitar riff is about as quintessential Pixies as you can get.
Yes. Yes, more of this please.
