Episode 39 - Pixies - Bossanova

July 2nd, 2016

Join us as we take our first look into one of those bands that seemed to be a victim of bad-timing, Pixies. While Pixies paved the way for "alternative music" to dominate the Top 40 in the 1990s, they didn't get to reap the rewards of their efforts due to their break-up in late 1992/early 1993. Here, we delve into Pixies' third studio album, "Bossanova" (released in 1990). Recorded on the heels of their breakthrough album, "Doolittle", this album was a departure from their previous release. But what of this album? Was "Bossanova" a worthy successor to their previous breakthrough or was it a rushed and disjointed effort that took a few steps backward? Tune in to find out, only on Iron-Cast.
