Tuesday Tune Two-Fer: Breeders Banquet

Pride month is over, so let’s turn it back over to the Breeders

The Breeders have released a 14-minute video called “Live in Big Sur,” recorded in the middle of a hiking trail in the most beautiful part of the California coast, capturing stripped-down performances of songs from Last Splash. In addition to some gorgeous drone footage, it’s also got short, clever animations scattered throughout.

The whole package is super charming, and a reminder that the band has a hell of a lot of great songs besides “Cannonball.” Here are two of my favorites:

I like “Wait in the Car” mostly because “Wait in the car, I’ve got business” is something I always thought only my mother said. It really helps sell the middle-aged midwestern punk rock vibe of the whole album. All Nerve is my second favorite Breeders album, and it was such a pleasure to see them get the band back together and still be as weird and funny as they were in the 90s.

Like when they recorded “Safari”. Which just cemented the crush on Kim Deal I already had from the Pixies. She’s just the coolest.

One thought on “Tuesday Tune Two-Fer: Breeders Banquet”

  1. I’m with you that All Nerve is incredible. If ever I get stuck in a loop I put on “Dawn: Making an Effort” and I feel righted. (Related: I love the RALLY refrain so much I made a little felt pennant with the word.)
