EDITORS’ NOTES

A pioneering indie-rock band continues its comeback streak. More sure-footed—and fun—than 2014’s Indie Cindy, Head Carrier bears the hallmarks of classic Pixies: Weird yet pretty, violent yet tender, and as reliant on sweet ‘60s harmonies as the rough edges of post-punk. See the oblique surf rock of “Classic Masher” (which could’ve made the band’s underrated Bossanova) or the rangy, folk-influenced “Tenement Song,” which harkens back to Doolittle.
