Morning music: Pixies offer up a free musical snack
Allow a moment of geek-out: ThePixiesarethebestbandever. The precursor to all the teenage angst-grunge music of the '90s, the Pixies sang "the classic songs every skate rat, drama club kid, lacrosse player and their parents should know by heart," as Pitchfork wrote.
The band has been on a determined come-back tour for the past six years. I'm not sure how I missed this one, but thankfully, the folks over at Mashable pointed out that the Pixies have been offering up a free download of four of their songs in honor of the 20th anniversary of their hit album "Doolittle." (Download the songs at the end of this post.)
