no longer for sale

The analog masters for Bossanova were missing for 18 years and were finally located in 2008 in the WEA tape archives in L.A. This is the first time the original 1/2" analog master tapes were used since Bossanova's original release in 1990. The opening instrumental to Bossanova makes it clear that the Pixies weren’t about to take the same crazed approach on their major-label debut as they did on their initial standout efforts, 1987's Surfer Rosa and 1989's Doolittle, more straightforward, linear, fluid, subtle, and dreamy, Bossanova finds the band exploring pop structures, dropping psychedelic accents, and satisfying surf-rock urges. While it often verges off-the-beaten path, particularly for mainstream tastes circa 1990, the set is the most accessible and hook-ridden record the Pixies ever made. Black Francis’ surreal narratives and breathy delivery flavor tunes like “Is She Weird,” “Velouria,” and “The Happening,” all of which sonically and/or lyrically tie into themes of aliens and sex. Macabre fixations and noisy outbursts take a backseat to tunefulness, putting a spotlight on Joey Santiago’s underrated guitar work and Kim Deal’s complementary back-up vocals. Recognizing the changes, producer Gil Norton bestowed Bossanova with spacious dynamics and wide-open arrangements that allow the music to breathe.
