Pixies Reveal New “Planet of Sound” Vid for 30th Year Release


Time is a motherfucker when you think about it. No matter what you do, time is always on hand to record it. It’s been thirty years since Pixies revealed their album Trompe Le Monde and surprisingly it sill holds up. The album includes hits like “Alec Eiffel,” “U-Mass” and of course “Alec Eiffel” are all included. On their latest drop you can hear a new vocal video for “Planet Of Sound” and like the album it still holds weight.

The video is definite eye candy. The words hit the page with plenty of energy. The chorus part hits hard and doesn’t relent. There’s a definite energy to the song and its verse that hits perfectly. The imagery of the eyes on a world rotating as lyrics come in is extraordinary. If there’s not much happening in your world, this is a great and short way to fix everything.

The Trompe Le Monde vinyl can be purchased directly from 4AD Records. It can be streamed on all streaming platforms as well. The lyric video for “Planet Of Sound” can be viewed above.
