The last album from alt-rockers the Pixies, “Trompe Le Monde,” came out way back in 1991. Then, last year, the Boston band started releasing singles and EPs, culminating in the new full album

“Indie Cindy.”

Also out on Tuesday:

• Rodrigo y Gabriela, “9 Dead Alive”

• Lindsey Stirling, “Shatter Me”

• Ray LaMontagne, “Supernova”

• Old 97s, “Most Messed Up”

• Chris Robinson, “Phosphorescent Harvest”

• Damon Albarn, “Everyday Robots”


Oscar winner Diane Keaton talks about Hollywood, aging and the string of A-list actors she’s dated in her second memoir,

“Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty.”

Also out this week:

• Greg Iles, “Natchez Burning”

• Marie Bostwick, “Apart at the Seams”

• Susan Mallery, “When We Met”

• Bella Andre, “Always on My Mind”

• Iris Johansen, “Live to See Tomorrow”


“Twilight” refugee Kellan Lutz couldn’t quite find box office gold in

“The Legend of Hercules,”

out Tuesday. Maybe Dwayne Johnson will have better luck in “Hercules,” hitting theaters in July. Also out on Tuesday:

• “Devil’s Due”

• “Gimme Shelter”

• “Gloria”

• “Labor Day”


The summer movie season kicks off with

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2,”

with Andrew Garfield facing not one but three villains. Also opening this week:

• “Le Weekend”

• “Finding Vivian Maier”


With great big movies come simultaneous video game tie-ins. So if you can’t wait until Friday to see the film, snatch a copy of

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” game, in which you can battle bad guys such as Kraven the Hunter, the Black Cat, Rhino, the Green Goblin and others. It’s available Tuesday for all formats.
