PIXIES WEEK: Wave of Mutilation by Pixies - While Surfer Rosa is my favorite Pixies album, Doolittle is in many ways a more listenable and pleasing album.  Whereas Surfer Rosa was raw, Doolittle took all that was great about the Pixies and cleaned up the rough edges, creating an album that crystallized the Pixies’ sound.

It is hard to pick just one song, but as I already posted Debaser and Gouge Away.  Wave of Mutilation just seemed like the song that stood out this morning, but I am taking a bit of a detour and posting the U.K. Surf version.  I first heard it on the Pump Up The Volume soundtrack and then picked it up on the Here Comes Your Man single for $1 in a used CD bin.  As much as I like the amped up original, I was instantly drawn to the dreamy, laid back version that seemed a much better fit for the lyrics about the ocean and mermaids and sailing away.
