Trompe Le Monde by Pixies on 4AD

Pixies - Trompe Le Monde


  • £16.99

Trompe Le Monde is the fourth studio album by Pixies. Released in 1991 on 4AD it was their last studio album featuring Kim Deal.

"Inhabiting the no-mans-land between self-implosion and commercial breakthrough whilst straddling a rare thin line between the accessible and impassable, the occasion had come for glaring contrasts to meld on a release that never once pauses for a second to consider its own incongruity. Though returning to the brazen Sturm und Drang of their earlier output on several tracks, Trompe Le Monde also burst forth with slick, forward-moving momentum. In subverting the implied criterion to be one or the other – brash or sweet – Pixies decided to be both and more." The Quietus
