For many fans of Pixies, it is Black Francis’ vocals that make the alternative group’s music so powerful. Tackling anything by the alternative powerhouse can be daunting.

You all submit so many great covers it’s hard to keep up. When we fall behind, we gather the best and brightest in a Submission Roundup.
Thanksgiving may be over, but today we want to thank all the artists who submit their music. You guys send too many covers to keep up with, so we like to round up some of our favorites before the tunes fall by the wayside. Download all the great November covers we didn’t get a chance to post about earlier!
