A number of tribute albums to the Pixies, an American alternative rock band, have been recorded since the band's break-up in 1993. Artists featured on the albums range from American rock bands, such as Weezer, OK Go and Eve 6, to lesser-known European bands
Doolittle is the second studio album by American alternative rock band Pixies, released in April 1989 on 4AD. The album's offbeat and dark subject material, featuring references to surrealism, Biblical violence, torture and death, contrasts with the clean production sound achieved by the newly hired producer Gil Norton. Doolittle was the Pixies' first international release, with Elektra Records as the album's distributor in the United States and PolyGram in Canada.
Pixies are back, or at least more back than they were before. The legendary four-piece announced that they’ll be releasing a new album called Head Carrier later this year and that, yes, this one is a real album, not three EPs stuck together like 2014’s Indie Cindy. That makes this the first full, planned Pixies record since 1991’s Trompe le Monde. They also released a track from the record, Um Chagga Lagga, which is fine. Frank Black isn’t pushing himself to the extreme levels of rockabilly performance pastiche that he could so easily. But shouldn't this all be a little more exciting? This is one of the most influential bands of the last four goddamn decades releasing their first real album in 25 years and, well, what are we all hoping for? Surfer Rosa? Kim Deal is gone now, but Lenchantin is a perfect addition to a band who, in theory, haven't lost it.
The record follows 2014 long-player Indie Cindy, and is the group's second since reuniting in 2004. Um Chagga Lagga" was debuted last year via a live session with Rolling Stone. It's the first official release to feature new member Paz Lenchantin, who assumes bass duties following the departure of original Pixie Kim Deal. I was very nervous in the beginning when I went to that first rehearsal," says Lenchantin. We had been more about the history of the Pixies, but now, we are about going forward. Paz is a joy to be around," adds drummer Dave Lovering. She's very funny, and we're having more fun than we've ever had as a band, we all have a blast together, on and off stage.

The true impact of Joy Division’s bass-leading, minimalist works is still being fully realized; echoes of the themes of fear, alienation, and loss they championed still resonate in so much music. That they might have gone on to surpass this fractured, wrenching catharsis is irrelevant; this is what is, and it is a thing of uncompromising beauty.
