WIN: Pixies' Indie Cindy On Vinyl
The Quietus , April 28th, 2014 06:36

Copy of the limited edition release, plus a T-shirt to giveaway

Today, the Pixies release Indie Cindy, their first album since Trompe Le Monde, bringing together the new EPs the band started putting out last year - have a watch of the video for ace album track 'Bagboy' at the foot of the piece. Reviewing the album on tQ last week, Julian Marszalek delivered a resounding blow to the band's naysayers, concluding: "Seen in the cold light of day, Indie Cindy [...] does feel like the nervous steps of a child dipping its toes into the water for the first time rather than a huge splash but this shouldn't really come as a surprise; after all, Pixies are probably more acutely aware of their legacy than you or I ever will be. Chances are that after the initial thrill has gone, you'll be reaching for Indie Cindy less frequently than Surfer Rosa and Doolittle, more than Trompe Le Monde and about the same as Bossanova and that's not a bad return to the fray by any measure. Job done and welcome back - it's nice to see you again."
