There have been a fair few songs throughout 'Pixies 2.0' that feel like spiritual successors or 'siblings' of older Pixies songs, or sometimes FB songs. Usually for me it's a case of instrumental dynamics and sonics, but sometimes it can be in the actual compositional side of things as well. Let me know any that come to mind for you.

Doggerel + Space (I Believe In)
sparse verse sections, bass+drums+additional percussion, spacy guitars, spoken word style vocal

What Goes Boom + Subbacultcha
the chug brothers

Bird of Prey, This Is My Fate, Plaster of Paris + Lovely Day, The Navajo Know
similar drum beats paired with music of a light or 'airy' nature, with clean lead guitar tones

In The Arms of Mrs Mark of Cain + Motorway to Roswell
cymbalom in Cain is reminiscent of the piano in Roswell, and both are more 'extended' songs with an epic feel

Blue Eyed Hexe + U-Mass
this one's pretty on the nose

Baal's Back + Rock Music
both pretty much of a particular type of heaviness that i don't hear in other pixies tunes, the vocal style a big part of it

Bel Esprit + The Happening
the lead guitar part (the one right at the start) is very reminiscent of the lead guitar in the second half of the happening

Classic Masher + If It Takes All Night
'man he looks so good' = 'every day of the week'

Updated my post with brief descriptions!
Also, realised I said 'Robert Onion' where I meant 'If It Takes All Night'

Oh yes, and in fact that one being written as a tribute by Paz means the reference is definitely intentional

Magdalena just sounds like Bossanova to me, but more like it was left off Bossanova as opposed to a specific song. Maybe Havalina...Hey it even rhymes!

What Goes Boom sounds like Rock Music to me.

Agree about Plaster of Paris and Navajo Know. They always seemed like twins to me

Maybe not siblings but Johnny Barleycorn and Catfish Kate could be cousins.

And Los Surfers Muertos is like Ana's ghostly sister.

I feel like this one is not only indisputable, but possibly intentional:

Silver Snail --> Silver Bullet
