Sometimes I keep songs in my itunes "just in case" I'll post them "at some point." Songs that I don't play that often despite their quality. Ones I look to delete when I run out of space on my truly outdated PC. Case in point, an acoustic version of the Breeders classic tune "Cannonball" from 1993. Now is definitely the time to bring it back into rotation...because....they're baaaaaaaaaack! (via Brooklyn Vegan).
A new album and tour:
It's an album which captures all the bittersweet electricity of classic Breeders records like Pod and Last Splash, and which breaks new ground at the same time; classic sounding, yet as relevant and exciting as ever.
Mountain Battles was recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago, Erika Larson at Stagg Street, Manny Nieto at Manny's Studio, at Refraze in Dayton and by Ben Mumphrey in the Basement.
The Breeders are : Kelley Deal, Kim Deal, Jose Medeles and Mando Lopez; Jose and Mando are both veterans of the Title TK campaign.
The Breeders will be playing live all over the world in 2008. Their schedule includes performances at Canadian Music Week and SxSW and Coachella, plus full tours in the USA and in Europe.
The Breeders are also set to play a full UK tour in April to mark the release of the album.
