Surfer Rosa is the debut studio album by the American alternative rock band Pixies, released in March 1988 on the British label 4AD. It was produced by Steve Albini. Surfer Rosa contains many of the elements of Pixies' earlier output, including Spanish lyrics and references to Puerto Rico. It includes references to mutilation and voyeurism alongside experimental recording techniques and a distinctive drum sound.

One of the most compulsively listenable college rock albums of the '80s, the Pixies' 1988 full-length debut Surfer Rosa fulfilled the promise of Come on Pilgrim and, thanks to Steve Albini's production, added a muscular edge that made their harshest moments seem even more menacing and perverse

One album that fits the latter description is The Pixies' 'Surfer Rosa'. Released on 21st March 1988, 'Surfer Rosa' was the Pixies' debut album following their mini-LP 'Come On Pilgrim' the year before. Both records were released through London based label 4AD who had marked out their camp in guitar-based music from the early 1980s with bands such as Bauhaus and saw something in The Pixies that they were keen to encourage and promote.

Album · 1988 · 13 Songs. Delivering on the promise of singer Black Francis’ classified ad seeking a bassist into Hüsker Dü and Peter, Paul and Mary, Surfer Rosa contrasted the visceral attack of punk and hardcore with the prettiness of pop and folk, resulting in songs ( Gigantic, River Euphrates, Where Is My Mind? ) as strange as they were pleasurable. Despite their arty slant, there was something scrappy, almost ordinary about the band that only made the mystery deeper: These weren’t the delicate transmissions of celestial beings but the weirdo racket of a nearby garage. What emerged was a new kind of American.
