This week on All Songs Considered, teams up with NPR Music's to deliver a healthy dose of new music to get you through the week. This week's episode starts off strong when Stephen brings a bombshell from indie-rock legends to the table, in the form of the bratty new single "Bagboy." Even though the Pixies made "Bagboy" after bassist Kim Deal left the band, it's exactly the type of comeback single you'd want after a nine year hiatus.
