Black Ark

Pixies classic goes post-classical

At first you might think the idea is crazy: modern orchestral arrangements of Surfer Rosa, in the style of an avant-garde marching band? But it works. “Gigantic” gets a jazzy, New Orleans-style treatment, while “Where Is My Mind?” starts out sounding quiet, contemplative and almost mournful before it builds to the bombastic chorus we all know and love from the original. Front to back, this is a great way to rediscover and appreciate a milestone album in indie rock.
