Original Analog Masters Located After 18 Years and Used for Remaster! Half-Speed Mastering Yields Unprecedented Sound!


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 will be the first time the original 1/2" analog master tapes were used since Bossanova's original release in 1990. At long last, the staggering dimensions of the Pixies’ canyon-wide soundscapes and three-dimensional atmospherics of their nuanced vocals are faithfully reproduced.

Released on August 13, 1990, Bossanova was the Pixies' 3rd release and was their second time collaborating with independent English producer Gil Norton.

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, also available from Mobile Fidelity on 180-gram LP. 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.
