Having a founding member quit is a death knell for most nostalgia bands. But when bassist Kim Deal left the Pixies in 2013, the band responded by infusing two rock’s leading female bassists to fill the void. In the process, they also shredded the dreaded “nostalgia band” label by releasing their first album in 20 years.

Paz Lenchantin (formerly of A Perfect Circle) is no Kim, but she doesn’t need to be. The Pixies have really all been about Black Francis. His hairline may have disappeared, but his stage presence hasn’t. He still shrieks and croons like his younger self.

Here comes your man

For more than a decade, the Pixies have done their reunion thing and toured, in fact, they’ve been more successful in the 2000s than they were in the 80s and 90s combined. But hearing “La La Love You” and “Here comes your man” can get old if your set list consists of songs older than most of your fanbase.
