Random 30 2013: The Pixies - Indie Cindy

Okay, so the Pixies 2013 “comeback” wasn’t exactly the most widely celebrated return known to mankind. Truth be told, it probably WAS a bit crap in terms of meeting wider expectations, and it’s undeniable that the band is very much poorer for Kim Deal’s absence. But it was also new work from old favourites, and (fanboy alert) I certainly didn’t think it was as bad as some made out.

‘Indie Cindy’ was easily the pick of the bunch on the EP1 release, and it proved ideal pod fodder over the last six months of the year; as much for its faux-Fall chant-along/sing-along qualities, as for all of the rare Pixies-of-old touchstones it seeks to reach.

Not so much the comeback of the year, no … just a group of old-timers doing their wild and crazy old thing.
