The Breeders "All Nerve" 3/2

Image

Quote:
Last October, the Breeders released "Wait in the Car," their first new studio recording since the 2009 EP Fate to Fatal and first recording by frontwoman Kim Deal since her exit from Pixies. It was also the first offering from the group since the lineup that recorded their 1993 mainstream breakthrough Last Splash reunited. Now the tune, which is a jagged, bouncy post-punk rocker that finds Deal singing lyrics like, "Consider I always struggle with the right word/ Meow meow meow meow meow" (classic Breeders), has a home as the second track on All Nerve. The album, which features an appearance by Courtney Barnett on "Howl at the Summit," contains 11 tunes that the band recorded in various studios around the south and the Midwest (including a session with Steve Albini). The title track finds one of the Deal sisters singing, "I won't stop/I will run you down," and it's a promise we're taking seriously for the rest of All Nerve.

Car Seat Headrest "Twin Fantasy" 2/16

Quote:
Car Seat Headrest's Will Toledo was 19 when he recorded a concept album called Twin Fantasy on his laptop and self-released it on Bandcamp in the fall of 2011. In the years that followed, as his band broke through to indie rock's upper echelons with 2015's Teens of Style and 2016's Teens of Denial, Toledo kept dreaming of revisiting that early project, which has remained a favorite among his day-one fans. "It was never a finished work," he says in a press release about the re-recorded version of Twin Fantasy that's out next month, "and it wasn't until last year that I figured out how to finish it." The original Twin Fantasy was lo-fi by necessity, but it's an album about huge, high-definition feelings – mostly, the world-collapsing weirdness of being a teenager in love. Now songs like the 13-minute "Beach Life-in-Death" ("I pretended I was drunk when I came out to my friends/I never came out to my friends/We were all on Skype, and I laughed and I changed the subject") have the gleaming, raging alt-rock grandeur they were always crying out for.

I feel like I’m in the minority but I think Nathaniel Rateliff sucks shit.

Yeah, I go back and forth on him. If I haven't heard anything from him in a while I'll listen to something and think "this is pretty alright", but then I get bored with it pretty quick and shelve him again.
