The Breeders Lace Up

Apr 15th, 2009 // 3 Comments

Kim and Kelley Deal’s sister act The Breeders have a new EP Fate To Fatal coming out on Tuesday, and the title track is catchy yet off-kilter, giving off a vibe that’s well-matched to the slow-motion destruction wrought by the members of the St. Louis derby rollerleague the Arch Rivals in the attendant video. Rolling Stone has the clip and an MP3 online, and those of you with a better eye than me should see if I’m right about there being a cameo by former bassist Josephine Wiggs within. (The woman crying blood at about the :30 mark—I may be thrown off by the eye makeup, though.) Anyway, RS hasn’t made the video embeddable on other sites, so before you go over there to watch it, why not enjoy a few other Breeders gems here?




“We’re Gonna Rise”

“Shocker In Gloomtown” (GBV cover)

“Lord Of The Thighs” (Aerosmith cover)

(That’s for Allison Iraheta. Study and learn, girl.)

    Also, the AMPS!

    I didn’t fall in love with their last album like I had hoped, but it was solid. Title TK forever! Can’t wait for the EP. The cover on the Safari EP, “So Sad About Us” was fantastic, so I hope the Marley cover on the new one is as good.

    Liked the song, liked the video, didn’t like having to watch a fucking applebee’s ad to see it, so screw Rolling Stone. I’d describe the catchy yet off-kilter vibe as “smack high”. Kim Deal still has one of the greatest smiles.

    A little unfair having me listen to their old, quality stuff before sending me to this new crap. Sorry, but ugh.
