    Bossanova

    Originally released in 1990, Bossanova was the Pixies' third full-length and second collaboration with independent English producer Gil Norton. The album was a noted departure from their unpredictable signature sound and it's considered their first thematic project. Leader Black Francis' (Frank Thompson) songwriting reveals his twisted interpretation of surf music combined with his fascination of aliens and UFOs. The end result is Bossanova, a surf-space rock album that found the Pixies reaching new heights. Pressed on Audiophile Quality 180g Vinyl!

    Indie Cindy


    "From the rst few seconds of 'Bagboy' it's clear that the band's
    vitality is fully intact" -NPR


    2014 will be the year that PIXIES indelibly stamp their musical footprint
    on rock history. The Alternative Rock legends are releasing their
    first studio album since 1991's 'Trompe Le Monde'. Needless to say, with
    two million catalogue album sales to their credit, and the recent press
    announcement for the new record creating huge waves of anticipation, a
    lot of people are very, very excited.


    Since the band reformed to play live shows in 2004, their legacy has
    grown stronger and deeper with each passing year. They've sold out
    shows and festivals around the globe, attracted a whole new generation
    of young converts, energized their supporters at press and radio, and
    delighted a ravenous fan-base drunk on their classic catalogue but
    hungry for new music.


    'Indie Cindy' arrives in the wake of three highly acclaimed EPs, a massively successful US tour, multiple
    radio sessions and an avalanche of press acclaim. It's the sound of a
    band firing on all cylinders, eager to pick up where they left off and they
    do not disappoint. Featuring the classic Pixies recipe of softer/louder
    dynamics, surf twang and rock crunch, Black Francis' darkly comical
    lyrics, and an array of instant classics like the singles 'Bagboy', 'Blue
    Eyed Hexe' and 'Greens and Blues', these 12 tracks are destined to win
    over die-hard fans and newcomers alike.


    The band will continue to tour throughout the year, playing festival dates
    and major market arenas, gaining even more new fans along the way,
    and setting the scene for one of their best-selling and most revered
    albums to date.

    The Boston Broadcast 1987

    Pressed On 140 Gram Clear Vinyl


    Live Broadcast On Emerson College's WERS Radio Station - Boston, MA - January 19th, 1987


    A stellar in-studio radio performance from the Pixies in 1987, broadcast from the WERS studios at Emerson College in Boston on January 18th, the band perform a killer set recorded two months before the release of their first EP, Come On Pilgrim. The set performed for this broadcast consists of most of the songs from Pilgrim, as well as numbers that would later appear on their next release, the full-length debut, Surfer Rosa.

    Doolittle 25: B-Sides, Peel Sessions And Demos

    First released in 1989 and Doolittle was
    the second Pixies album, but the first to
    be made available in the US. An instant hit
    with both critics and fans, its slow burn
    success has since helped it to sell close to
    a million copies in the US alone.


    Among the praise thrown Doolittle's way, Pitchfork ranked it at Number 4 in their
    Best Albums of the 80s poll, while NME
    writers in 2004 named it their second best
    album of all time. 2009 saw the band tour
    the album to celebrate its 20th birthday
    and 5 years on, they've decided it's now
    time to give it the deluxe release treatment
    it deserves.


    The vinyl version tracklisting includes the
    B-sides, the Peel Sessions and the album
    demos being pressed on to two pieces of
    180g black vinyl. Again, this comes with
    new art from Vaughan Oliver which is different to CD art.

    Trompe Le Monde

    Available On Vinyl for the First Time In Years!


    Even though Trompe le Monde (French for 'fool the world') doesn't sound quite like the Pixies' other work, Come on Pilgrim's spooky beginnings, Surfer Rosa's abrasive assault, Doolittle's deceptively accessible punk-pop and Bossanova's spacy sonics helped make Trompe le Monde a rousing swan song for the influential legends and it was a precursor to alternative rock's imminent success.

    Trompe Le Monde


    The Pixies Trompe Le Monde On Numbered Limited Edition 180g LP From Mobile Fidelity


    Pixies Swan Song Sparks With Electrically Charged Hooks, Outer-Space Atmospherics, And Eminent Tunefulness



    Mastered From The Original Master Tapes: Restoration Turns 1991 Album Into A Sonic Blockbuster


    Frank Black-led Set Includes Contagious Cover Of The Jesus And Mary Chain's "Head On"


    The Pixies verged on commercial breakthrough when the now-iconic band released Trompe le Monde in September 1991. A sea change in popular music tastes that the band helped initiate began to sweep the world. And the Boston quartet seemed prepared to lead the way, with this, its eminently tuneful fourth record, jam-packed with crafty hooks, prickly tones, catchy elements, outer-space atmospherics, electrically charged energy, and delightfully quirky lyrics.


    As it stands, Trompe le Monde takes its place as one of the finest swan songs ever recorded. If the Pixies wouldn't have broken up right after its release, there's no telling what would've happened. All that you need to know is that the 15-track effort is as hard rocking and brilliantly innovative as any of the group's creations. That's no small feat.


    Mastered from the original analog tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited edition 180g LP presents the ensemble's abrasively melodic landmark in a fidelity it's never enjoyed in any prior version. Featuring lusher keyboards and moodier soundscapes than its predecessors, but also reclaiming the nasty guitar edginess and swooning distortion of the group's earliest efforts, Trompe de la Monde finally comes across as the Pixies intended: A sonic bridge between college-rock's influential cruder-textured albums and the polished professionalism that distinguished alt-rock classics.


    In other words, Mobile Fidelity's version presents it as the perfect-sounding album: Replete with grit, rawness, and character, but mixed in with radio-friendly smoothness and virtuosic professionalism. Awash with incredible timbres and tonalities, myriad new details rise to the surface. Listen to the counterpoint melodies and layered vocals on "Letter to Memphis"; the trash-compactor feedback and thumping bass during the whipsawing "Planet of Sound"; the "Spyhunter"-like pace and limitless depth now present on "Subbacultcha." Dynamics, contrasts, low-end frequencies, and imaging are all significantly enhanced. Compared to the original CD, Trompe le Monde emerges as a new album-a sonic wonderland that's not far removed from that of Nirvana's celebrated blockbuster Nevermind.


    Musically, the Pixies were never better. On par with the groundbreaking Surfer Rosa and Doolittle, Trompe le Monde explodes with hyper riffs, jerks to stop-start progressions, elates with cheerful emotions, and bangs on to giddy surf-fused arrangements. With Kim Deal absent from the songwriting process, vocalist/guitarist Frank Black takes the reigns and doesn't disappoint. Tales about sea monkeys ("Palace of the Brine"), aliens ("Planet of Sound"), and love ("The Sad Punk") bop alongside memorable jabs at hipster pretensions ("Subbacultcha") and inflated egos ("U-Mass"). A contagious cover of the Jesus and Mary Chain's "Head On" will have you hitting "repeat." Power pop, wanderlust punk, theatrical glam rock, reconfigured reverb-laden country-all here, all encouraging repeat listens.


    Nearly lost due amidst the alternative trend that it played such a key role in spawning, Trompe le Monde gets new life courtesy of this extremely punchy, greatly balanced Mobile Fidelity issue. If you missed it the first time, don't make that mistake again. Essential with a capital "E," and the perfect way to close Mobile Fidelity's Pixies catalog restoration series.
