Bleached: The Beatles' White Album Effect on the US Alt-rock Explosion of 1988-95

The Beatles' White Album has been credited with a lot of things over its 50-year history, but how about as the single biggest influence on US alternative rock as it burst into the mainstream in the late '80s and early '90s? Well, it's not as crazy as you might think.

The Breeders: 21 August 2009 - Washington DC

Anyone disappointed by the night's set list may as well just give up on life, because the best material from each album was represented, naturally weighted towards the older stuff.

Feel It: An Interview With Kim Deal of the Pixies and the Breeders

If it seems like Deal has too much going on right now, you're just not keeping up. Her work with the hugely influential Pixies and indie icons the Breeders and the Amps has made her a legend.

Reviews

The Breeders

This show was much more than a mere trip down memory lane. It served to showcase that the Breeders’ new songs can clearly be counted alongside their exemplary canon of work, whilst also providing proof that their older tunes have not only stood the test of time, but have been befriended by it.

The Breeders: Title TK

No one does disarmingly off-center quite like Kim Deal. Her lyrics match her voice (and Kelley's voice too, them being identical twins and all): world-wearily hopeful, bored of it all but coming back for more.
