Pixies - EP-2

While the Pixies reunited in 2004, it wasn't until 2013 that they started releasing new music together, starting with the single "Bagboy" and following up with EP-1. Logically, the next release is EP-2.

The Wolf of Wall Street: Music from the Motion Picture

While I haven't yet seen Martin Scorsese's latest film, I've heard, well, a lot of things about it (good and bad). I would still like to see it though. Until I do, I have the film's soundtrack to get me by. It features some great classic artists, like Howlin' Wolf and Bo Diddley, as well as some new classics, namely Sharon Jones!

Listen: Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings - "Goldfinger"
Listen: Bo Diddley - "Road Runner"
