The Pixies Release Their First New Song In Nine Years

So disappointed I was that I had made small talk with you...

One can never be too certain as to what is going on with the Pixies at any given moment — the band’s tense internal relations have received almost as much air time as their music since their inception in 1986. Friction between frontman Black Francis and bassist/vocalist Kim Deal was cited as the reason for the group’s initial dissolution in 1993, and just two weeks ago the remaining members announced that Deal had left the band once again. Back in 2011, drummer David Lovering suggested that the original lineup would in fact be working on a new album, but the tracks never came to light … until now! Yep, that’s right: the Pixies just came out with “Bagboy,” their first song in nine years, and god knows that any day that marks the release of a new Pixies song is a GREAT day. Nothing. Else. Matters. [NYMag.com]

Watch A 6-Year-Old Girl Front A Screamo Band On “America’s Got Talent”

Americas Got Talent
Watch her sing her original song, "Zombie Skin"!

Judging by her sweet face, polka dot dress, and pink tights, most people expected six-year-old “America’s Got Talent” contestant Aaralyn to sing a cute version of “Animal Crackers In My Soup,” but that’s not Aaralyn’s music style of choice. When she took the stage, backed by her nine-year-old brother Izzy on the drums, something totally unexpected — and totally awesome — came out of her mouth: an original screamo song called “Zombie Skin.” Just push play, OK? You won’t regret it. [YouTube]

Ever since my sister introduced the Robin Thick song “Blurred Lines” to me all of four days ago, I’ve been listening to it on repeat for embarrassingly long stretches of my days. It’s catchy, fun, and sexy, and I can already envision my drunken self squealing in excitement when I hear it blasted in some yuppie bar this Friday night. I probably should have picked up the hint that it was somewhat controversial when halfway through watching the music video together, my sister hesitantly said, “Yeah, the lyrics aren’t the best…”

But it wasn’t until I read articles on Buzzfeed and The Daily Beast that I (kind of) grasped the (stretch of a) controversy. I totally understand how practically naked women dancing around clothed men isn’t the most feminist music video in the world. Visually, I get the debate. But critics were even going so far as to say that the lyrics, “I know you want it” were, well, rapey. Really? Keep reading »
