One of alternative rock's most influential groups, PIXIES reunited in 2004 after a two-decade hiatus, which followed an amazing six years of recording and touring that blew a breath of fresh air through both the independent and national charts. Led by singer-songwriter-rhythm guitarist Black Francis (a/k/a Frank Black), the quartet's music contains elements of psychedelia, noise pop, hard rock, surf pop, and surf rock, with often surreal lyrics covering offbeat subjects. Artists as far-ranging as Nirvana, Arcade Fire and U2 have claimed PIXIES as an influence on their musical stylings.
New York-based indie musician Mitski Miyawaki’s latest album, Puberty 2, is the follow-up to 2014’s Bury Me At Makeout Creek, hailed by Pitchfork as “a complex 10-song story [containing] some of the most nuanced, complex and articulate music that’s come from the indiesphere in a while.” Puberty 2 picks up where its predecessor left off. Musically, there are subtle evolutions: electronic drum machines pulse throughout beneath Pixies-ish guitars, while saxophone lights up its opening track. In terms of message though, the 25-year-old cuts the same defiant, feminist figure on Puberty 2 that won her acclaim last time around. Sadness is awful and happiness is exhausting in the world of Mitski. The effect of Puberty 2, however, is a stark opposite: invigorating, inspiring and beautiful.
