Pixies Talk "Head Carrier"
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 09:04:58
Pixies are gearing up to release their sixth studio LP Head Carrier and first with new bassist Paz Lenchantin. It's their first step forward in this new formation of the band, and one that Paz says has been like "a family since day one."
Pixies, however, are not looking to get away from what made them one of alternative rock's biggest names for the last several decades. And this is immediately apparent from the Paz and Black Francis penned tune "All I Think About Now", which is a thank you letter to Kim Deal. As Paz says, "she's the reason why I'm in the band. She's like a phantom in my heart."
ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann spoke with Paz about the band's new record Head Carrier, what it was like stepping in and working with someone as prolific as Black Francis, and how embracing mistakes can turn into beautiful thank you notes.
