Pixies; streaming at newpixi.es/bagboy

Pixie-fan monkeys are in heaven, with the release of their favourite alt-rockers’ first new music since the Bam Thwok reunion single from 2004.

Bagboy, which arrived late last week in the form of a video and a free download, is a tough piece of squalling, drawling blues meat, with front man Frank Black seething in a Neil Young-style rap-rant: “I’m not feeling your buzz. I only smell your crock of stew.”

 Perhaps he’s addressing bass player Kim Deal, who announced her departure from the band two weeks ago.

 Nothing’s easy with these guys.
