There was quite a stir when The Breeders returned early in 2018 with All Nerve. That’s in large part down to the fact that Kim Deal’s band hadn’t released a record for a long time - Mountain Battles, the band’s last full-length, had dropped a decade earlier. It might have been easier to forget about them if Mountain Battles hadn’t been such a fine record. The baker’s dozen of tracks here do all the typical Breeders stuff - knotty guitar work, leftfield song structures and Deal’s expressive-not-expressive vocal delivery - with aplomb, but there is a wisdom and nous to these songs that elevates them to something else. If you’re sceptical, try the chest-swelling opener ‘Overglazed’.
