WoLL turned EX on to them and EX's thread gave me the idea to track down the albums they've put out and compile them into one thread so people can d/l them or read about them or whatever. The Breeders are an American alternative rock band formed in 1988 by Kim Deal of the Pixies and Throwing Muses' Tanya Donelly. The band has experienced a number of line-up changes; the current line-up consists of Kim Deal (lead vocals and guitar), her twin sister Kelley Deal (guitar and backing vocals), Jose Medeles (drums and percussion), Mando Lopez (bass guitar) and Cheryl Lyndsey (guitar); Kim Deal has been the band's sole continual member. Their first album, Pod (1990), received critical acclaim but was not commercially successful. The Breeders' most successful album, 1993's Last Splash, produced the hit single "Cannonball". In 2007, the band announced their next album, Mountain Battles, released in April 2008. The Breeders - Pod.
Before The Pixies came along, Kim and her twin sister Kelly had an act in the early 80s called The Breeders. Not much came of it, as it was mainly just for fun, until Kim Deal wanted to do a side project from The Pixies. She picked up the old name and recruited a few other people from different bands to record an LP. Thus, the very raw and underappreciated first album, "POD".

"POD" is very broody and melodic throughout the album which, in contrast to the female vocals, sets a different stage from The Pixies. The whole album is very raw, very honest, but so catchy the listener can't help but get a song or two stuck in their head from time to time. There's a lot of short and silly songs scattered throughout "POD", but the highlights are within the more developed tracks like the catchy "Hellbound", or a very well done, arguably transcending, version of The Beatles "Happiness Is A Warm Gun". Though any Pixies fan should really appreciate The Breeders, they should not necessarily compare them, but consider them as separate bands with their own respectable contributions. There's pounding drums, scratchy guitars, heaviness without sacrificing melody, a perfect case being "Iris", and intelligent humor, all of which would make anyone tired of the monotonous emo or indie scene of today very satisfied.

The Breeders sound is pretty, but still dark. In its raw nature, it may take a few listens to really appreciate everything "POD" has to offer, but it is definitely worth the purchase. The Breeders - Last Splash. In 1993, I turned 10 years old. I was in 3rd grade and I absorbed every song in the Top 40 of that year. A look at my cassette collection told the tale: Ace of Base, Toni Braxton, Mariah Carey and worst of all, Wilson Phillips.
If it was played on MTV, I listened to it. Sure, some alternative music snuck in there now and then, but nothing made a big impression or changed the way I listened to music until one single came along – "Cannonball" by The Breeders. I can't really put my finger on why that song struck a chord with me. Was it that groovy bass line? The sweet deadpan harmonies by the sisters Deal? The absurdist lyrics? That inspired video co-directed by Kim Gordon and the then unknown Spike Jonze? Whatever it was, "Cannonball" essentially changed my tastes in music and opened the door to a wealth of Alternative rock bands and kick started my own obsession with girl rockers.
Last Splash remains a staple in my music collection and I even still have that ol' audio cassette sitting in my closet. The Breeders started as an outlet for Kim Deal's songwriting outside of the Pixies. She recruited Throwing Muses guitarist Tanya Donnelly, Slint drummer Britt Walford and Perfect Disaster bassist Josephine Wiggs and recorded Pod. As Black Francis announced the disbanding of the Pixies via a press release, Kim Deal reintroduced the Pixies with twin sister Kelley, Wiggs and drummer Jim MacPhearson and a new record, Last Splash. With the help of the single "Cannonball," The Breeders practically owned the Alternative market. The video was in heavy rotation on MTV and if Kim Deal wasn't already an indie rock demigoddess with the Pixies, she certainly was after that single arrived.
Last Splash isn't a perfect record. It's uneven, some songs reaching blissful fuzzed out heights, some songs sounding half-thought out and messy. But by no means should The Breeders be relegated to Alternative One Hit Wonder status. Last Splash is imaginative, fragmented and fascinating blend of sounds resulting in a vast collage of inspiration. It's an album that rivals the Pixies weaker albums and the whole of Frank Black's solo career. Like "Cannonball" (which reached #2 on the Billboard charts) the best songs on Last Splash have a really buoyant quality.
Filled with sweet vocals by Kim and Kelley, some pretty sexually-charged lyrics and some of Wiggs' most aggressive and melodic baselines, "Divine Hammer" remains one of my favorite songs and should have been a bigger hit than it was. "Drivin' on 9" relies on a Country groove and shows that Kim Deal is a better singer than she's typically given credit for. Mostly instrumental, "Roi" is like a metal surf song chock full of spacey guitar noise courtesy of the Deals. "Invisible Man" combines aggressive chugging guitars with Kim's romanticism and once those strings come in, you're just sucked in, like a "sweet caress. " "No Aloha" plays with an interesting mix, but Jim MacPhearson's thumping, powerful drums are what sell this track.
"Do You Love Me Now" revives a song from their EP Safari with a slower pace. Though a solid track, it's easily skippable. Instrumentals like "Flipside" and "S.
" show a great deal of skill and really great production, but in the end feel like filler. The Kelley Deal penned "I Just Want to Get Along" doesn't achieve the depth and greatness that the other tracks reach. Despite the misses, collectively Last Splash is still an outstanding album. Songs like "Cannonball," "Divine Hammer" and "Drivin' on 9" still bring a smile to my face and I can't help but sing along.
It deserves its status as a must-have for Alternative rock fans. For myself, Last Splash will always hold a special place for me. It was my gateway drug, if you will, and it opened new doors of music that I might never have encountered otherwise.
I take my hat off to you, Breeders. The Breeders - Title TK. Nine years have passed since dishevelled, lazy grunge was 'now' and The Breeders released their second album, Last Splash to a platinum reception with their debut, Pod firmly under their belts. In the interim the Deal sisters have been dealing with their respective addictions. Kim's compulsive studio habit and Kelley's compulsive drug habit have kept them away from the record-buying public until the endless song-tweaking and a change of line up resulted in their third, painfully but not intentionally, intimate album: Title TK.
Kimfelt journalist shorthand for title-to-come would suit the album's sentiment, and the first track Little Fury asserts Kim and Kelley's familiar vocal harmony as they promise they'll get there one day: "Title TK, if I don't black out". Recruiting new members does not a band make however.
The Breeders are Kim and Kelley Deal. Richard, Mando and Jose from the LA punk outfit 'Fear'sound like they played the parts they were given, although the album is no less effective for it. Kim Deal and Steve Albini produced the album as minimalist, analogue, lo-fi, anti-rock. Each song as a result is rendered a rawness, simplicity and individuality, devoid of the generic charmlessness that the digital studio can deliver. Kim and Kelley's vocal is as lazy and uncomplicated as we ever were a grungy, adolescent nine years ago. It only serves to make Kim's feminine, soft, melodic voice compelling and endearing in comparison.
The whole record is simplicity itself. The distinctive harmonies created by the Deal sisters are the albums haunting hallmark, effective over a sparse demo-like texture and pared-down lazy beats totally unaffected by convention. The wonderfully half-hearted rousing call "round up holler girls" of the opener, "Little Fury" and the single that closes Title TK, "The Huffer", are the beatier frame on which a more pensive body is hung. There is also quirky hilarity of "Full on Idle", Kim rendering the lyrics unintelligible.
The heartbreaking tonal twists and intimate muted musing "I am the make up on your eye" on the single "Off You". A lazily rocking bass riff and snare meanwhile underpins the morse interplay of two guitars and a characteristic Deal/Deal vocal harmony on the "The She", which is darker in comparison. Listen to this record on your own, because the beauty in its simplicity is that it's highly personal and contemplative. You fill in your own gaps, you make your own story and like The Breeders, you remain unconcerned by popularity. Pass:SirensSound. blogspot. com.
