Watch Courtney Barnett Perform “Nameless, Faceless” With The Breeders

This post was originally published on this site

Courtney Barnett & The BreedersCourtney Barnett and the Breeders have some history together. Obviously, the heavier guitar-rock side of Barnett’s sound shares more than a little DNA with what the alt-rock legends were doing in the ’90s, and she covered the Breeders’ iconic hit “Cannonball” in 2014 and appeared on the Talkhouse’s podcast with Kim Deal … More »

Have you noticed the silence? I realize the other guy releasing an album 6/1 has been drowning out everybody else anyway, but the contrast is instructive: Whereas Kanye West is doing everything he can to rankle and entrance the masses, his fellow media-savvy cult of personality Josh Tillman hasn’t made a peep. His latest … More »

Watch The Breeders Return To Conan After 25 Years

This post was originally published on this site

Back in 1993, the first year that Conan O’Brien was the host of Late Night, the Breeders appeared on his show. Back then, O’Brien’s Late Night was the only late-night show that consistently booked left-of-center rock bands — even left-of-center rock bands who had radio hits, as the Breeders did. On Conan, the Breeders played … More »

The Breeders announce first new album in a decade, All Nerve, remind us all what an electric guitar sounds like

This post was originally published on this site

Look y’all: I know it can be hard to remember with all the legal marijuana we’ve been smoking constantly and all the hardcore gangster rap and knob-twiddling techno rotting our brains (not to mention all the violent video games!), but there used to be this thing called “rock ‘n’ roll” — and there used to be this one band called “The Breeders” who were actually pretty damn good at it! Now, the reason I’m interrupting your daily binge on sociopathic YouTube vlogger drama to tell you this seemingly irrelevant information is because, in fact, The Breeders are coming back. To save rock ‘n’ roll! That’s right: we can all listen to real music again!

So put down the avocado toast and listen up: The Breeders have announced their first new album in over 10 (but fewer than 11) years! It’s called All Nerve, and it’s out through 4AD on March 2 — better known as Read Across America Day (what are books, again?). Pre-order it here.

The album will feature the band’s classic Last Splash line-up, consisting of Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson; who reunited on stage alllllllll the waaaaaay back in 2013 and have been virtually inseparable ever since! To prove it, the band is also taking off on an enormous tour across North America and Europe. Check out the dates below! (Oh, and heads up: they play real instruments on stage, not all that auto-tune and press play and bob your head nonsense we’re used to…)

If you’ve been drawing a blank through this whole article because you vaped your brain to mush or something, the band shared the first new track from the album a few months ago to help us all remember what that familiar twang of the electric guitar sounds like. SO: listen to “Wait in the Car,” watch the album trailer, read the entire tracklist and tour date itinerary below, and REJOICE: for rock ‘n’ roll has indeed been saved; and, consequently, human dignity has, too!
