We’ve got some new music for you on Slacker and right now from some indie/alternative favorites. It seems some artists are dusting off the studio pipes and getting back down to business.
First, we have the Pixies. Just two weeks after announcing that Kim Deal had left the band, Pixies have released “Bagboy”, their first new song in 9 years.
They’ve also announced that Kim Shattuck of the Muffs will replace Deal for their upcoming world tour. The band says they will be playing “the most wide-ranging concert set-lists of Pixies music in the band’s career.” You can hear “Bagboy” now on Slacker’s New Indie First!
Beck is also back at it with his first new music since 2008’s “Modern Guilt.”
His new track “Defriended” was released as a single; he plans to release two albums this year, one acoustic and one more in line with Beck’s electro/avant-pop style. You can hear Beck’s new music–including “Defriended”– and more of tomorrow’s biggest songs today on Slacker’s New Alternative First here.
More new music coming your way on Slacker. Stay tuned!
