I can not understand why Peter Doran opens up his album with perhaps the weakest song on the album, "Hunter's Sketchers'. Cause after that song we are invited to a nice mix of thoughtful lyrics, a light produced singer songwriter pop with tasteful string arrangement. The second track on the CD "Sacred Place" is one of those songs, and "Someone Else's Heart" is another just to take two examples. If I have to draw any parallels with other artists, you could say a mix between Jules Shear, Glen Phillips and Eg White's solo stuff. A small gem of a disc that's perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
The Pixies was selected randomly from a dictionary by guitarist Joey Santiago. The band took a liking to the word´s definition, "mischievous little elves". The name was shortened from the original, "Pixies In Panoply".
