Smallpools Announce Release of Debut EP on RCA

The four-piece outfit founded in Los Angeles with ties to New York, New Jersey and Oregon.

The EP will feature their first single "Dreaming" (which is part of our current playlist) + 3 new tracks.

About 'Dreaming' the band explains: "In contrast to the upbeat vibe of the music, the song talks about a moment where everything goes wrong in a situation where you thought you had it all figured out. A moment we’ve all experienced to some degree, but most often if we’re lucky, in a dream where we get to wake up in a sweat and say, “Phewf, ok, that wasn’t real.” "

Smallpools EP tracklist:

01. Dreaming
02. Mason Jar
03. Over & Over
04. No Story Time

Watch/Listen: Pixies Release "Bagboy" First New Song in Nine Years

Pixies have released the video for their bran new track "Bagboy", the first in almost ten years. The song has been added to our current playlist The band used Twitter to tell fans about the surprise new track, posting:

We have something new we'd like you to hear. 
Cover your breath, polish your teeth... BAGBOY...."

About the new song, Black Francis says:

"The lyrics, coincidentally, were composed at a Starbucks Coffee in Harvard Square in Cambridge, about a hundred feet from where, 25 years ago, I composed some of the lyrics to an old Pixies song called ‘Break My Body.’ Twenty-five years later, some Starbucks in Harvard Square…I thought that was kind of interesting. The music for the song has been around for a few years. There are some demos I made with Joey and David a few years ago in Los Angeles, related to a film idea that still has yet to see the light of day, although work on the music continued. So a lot of the musical idea had been kicking around for awhile. It’s pretty simple, kind of a blues-based, two-note kind of thing, really."
