Indie Cindy

How long were they supposed to wait? Ten years after the Pixies launched their reincarnation as a touring band, they've cranked out a new album – exactly what fans praised them for not doing back in 2004. It might seem like sacrilege, especially without the much-missed sass of Kim Deal, but that depends on how mystical you want to get about a band as pop as the Pixies. Indie Cindy has hit-or-miss songs already released via digital dribbles and drabs. It's the ballads, rather than the overly shtick-laden rockers, that truly evoke the Pixies – especially "Greens and Blues" and "Andro Queen," where Frank Black travels through space to find crush-worthy alien girls.
