Stream Pixies Head Carrier
A new Pixies album might not mean the same thing today as it would’ve meant 25 years ago. But Pixies remain one of the most important bands in the history of American underground rock, and there’s something inspiring about the way they continue to crank out new music even as they battle issues like guitarist Joey Santiago’s addictions. Next week, the band will release Head Carrier, their second album since reuniting in 2004. It’s a brief, toothy album, and we’ve already posted a handful of its songs: “Um Chagga Lagga,” “Talent,” “Tenement Song.” And right now, you can stream the entire thing below, via NPR.
