Tuesday Evening Melody: Pixies by Piano

by Trent Gilliss, senior editor

The beautiful world of Tumblr delivers a gem to the threshold of our blogging door with this marvelous rendition of a Pixies classic. And, telegrammarian couldn’t have described this piano music any better:

Maxence Cyrin is one hell of a cover artist and pianist. His music has appeared in a number of films, and this cover of “Where is My Mind” from his album Novo Piano is a perfect example of how awesome at piano covers he really is. It was also in the film It’s Kind of a Funny Story (2010). 

Basically, if you love the Pixies and you love piano, this song is tailor-made for your ears. If you’re into Nirvana, The Arcade Fire, MGMT, and/or Beyonce (and many more) AND you love piano, then his album Novo Piano is tailor-made for your ears. Check it out, guys. Do it. DO IIIIT.
