Jam of the Week: Pixies

Artist: Pixies

Album: Doolittle

Genre: Alternative

Date: 1989

Sound: Groundbreaking & Unique Alternative Rock

Cool Stuff: I’m traveling to Boston tomorrow, and I thought what better way to get hyped for my inaugural visit to the fair city than jam to my favorite Boston band? When I first heard the Pixies, they sounded like the predecessors to Nirvana. Both have very unique and idiosyncratic (words, boom) styles, and were hugely influential during the birth of Alternative Rock. Black Francis and Kim Deal are Rock legends, and they’ve definitely done Boston proud. Way more badass than the lame band “Boston,” that’s for sure.
