So, let's compile the current rumors

- According to some interviews (often Paz), a new album is in the works
- Someone on this forum supposedly heard that the Rockfield studios in england have been booked in early 2018
- Charles said to some journalist last year that he'd like his next record to be produced by both Dalgery and Norton

As for the songs, nothing new on the BMI catalog, but there's still many unreleased "new" songs in the list. We already know some of them as official/unofficial demos/raw versions or short live snippets (Super Lecker), but not all of them.

If two albums (IC HC) produce only one B-side (WOW) that seems to me that they are planning on using most of the other demo songs like O Little Cloud for the new album.

It really doesnít matter as long as itís good.
Bedbug Posted - 02/09/2018 : 11:32:45
Bad frank black music > good Weezer music

Thatís why it is very cool news to me.

But no matter what happens, Iím sure my most frequently spun album of 2018 will be either Trompe or TOTY.

Is that good, bad, sad, or rad?
oddball Posted - 02/09/2018 : 10:44:57
Maybe something new will be out by then, considering that Weezer will be releasing their new Black Album prior to the tour.

Sprite Posted - 02/09/2018 : 10:42:21
What would be the coolest news is if we knew there would new music out before this Weezer tour. What do people think are the chances? I could do without the 6 month mixing and tweaking that seemed to happen with last two.

Yeah, I hear you man, and I don't disagree, you're right.

But there is such a thing as too much help.

I think some of their best stuff has a random feel to it. Plenty of material from the early albums have a feeling of spontaneity which I don't feel much of on 2.0. Didn't Frank even say that he wrote the second verse of Bone Machine right before he got up and performed it the first time live? And also I think he said that they wrote Ana (maybe it was another Bossanova tune) while they were in the studio because they had some time to kill or to fill.

As Tod Swank told Ed Templeton regarding Toy Machine, "Whatever, just make it rad."

I feel like they care too much now or something. Just put stuff out. We will love it even if we pick it apart. We still will love it.


i'm not sure it's caring too much.
my guess is that the release side is completely in the hands of manager type people. and they never just put stuff out.

I really love Head Carrier. It's pretty straight forward, but I feel like that's what the band needed at the time.... a place for all 4 members, including Paz as a new full time contributing member, to bring it back to a solid, comfortable stage for them. Indie Cindy was a difficult transitional album, I feel like Head Carrier planted their footing in a way. After seeing them 9 times on the Head Carrier tour I feel like the band is on fire more than they've been at any other point during version 2.0, and I have a feeling album #3 is going to be really special. Here's hoping that they're gearing up to record at this very moment and that they produce some great music over the next few months.
natenate101 Posted - 02/03/2018 : 06:05:44
Listening to HC this morning, and Dave really has to step up his game
In their next release. So vanilla on most of the HC tracks. If he varied his approach up more I think it could elevate some of the songs.

Also, Classic Masher is really freakin solid and Tenement Song could be greater without such repetition in the chorus. Just have Paz's background during the verses saying it, and change up the chorus and it's great. Overall, BF can dig deeper with his songwriting and hopefully he hits a rich vein of form for whatever they are working on next.
Bedbug Posted - 02/03/2018 : 01:35:51
IC is rising in my opinion poll and HC has leveled out.

They are both good and I hope FB makes 20+ more like them
pot Posted - 02/02/2018 : 23:10:07
It's funny how albums that don't grab you at the time can come back and make a better impression on you in hindsight. One day in the future you hear a song on the radio that you initially hated and you find yourself saying to yourself, what is that song again? I think I like(d) that a lot! I can't say I feel the same way about IC or HC though. But this has happened to me with other things. Maybe it will happen to me with Pixies 2.0 music.
billgoodman Posted - 02/02/2018 : 21:52:12
Listened to IC and HC yesterday, suprisingly great records

---------------------------
BF: Mag ik Engels spreken?
Bedbug Posted - 02/02/2018 : 10:10:22
Bagboy is the last (only?) exciting song of 2.0. No other song achieves this level of weirdness and energy and unpredictability. Even my beloved Tenement Song falls short in the energy department.

I still find What Goes Boom unlistenable because of all the garbage compression white noise in it.

The opinions continue to be varied, which was not the case for 1.0 stuff.

Another Toe is not that great, but it can get stuck in your head. I think an easy listening / dentist office version would be cool.
sdon Posted - 02/02/2018 : 07:18:05
I love Bagboy (most innovative pixies track in a long while) and What Goes Boom, and Oona, Baal, All The Saints...

I really hate Another Toe, Women of War, and find Jaime Bravo too "easy", like Talent or All I Think About Now


Gosh, I think I miss Kim Deal :)

I for one will never get tired of talking about how compression ruined IC for the simple fact that compression ruined IC.

TheScooper Posted - 02/01/2018 : 11:42:46
I wish whoever did the final mix for WOW had also mastered the last two records.

Would also love to hear more three part harmonies like the one on WOW. As BF ages out of screaming on everything, that could be an interesting direction.

(to the other debate going on ... I LOVE bagboy. Feels totally like the Pixies, yet sounds like nothing they did before. Also love Jamie Bravo, so not sure where that puts me. Even Another Toe is cool IF you hear it live, I can't stand the version on IC.)
Bedbug Posted - 02/01/2018 : 11:05:26
And also itís interesting how so many people like WOW (I realize not everybody) and yet it has Pazís voice prominently.

Just listened to WoW the other day too. Catchy tune. Would be cool if they dropped some loose songs online from time to time. Or BF shares some rough demos like Last Night The Wolves Came Out and Oh Little Cloud.

As BF said, IC was transitional. I like the fact that many tracks have this Trompe-like kind of feel to them (Jaime, Magdalena, Boom, TOE (!)), but it probably "fails" as a Pixies record, whatever that means, on the most experimental tracks (Snail, Snakes). Still a great record IMO. But somehow lacks the strong final cut that HC has. Some songs are just way too long/repetitive.

But the most astonishing fact is probably Pixies fans enjoying Bagboy (ew!) rather than Jaime Bravo. Bravo is classic Pixies guys. C'mon ! And Joey score is great.

And I like Another Toe.
