A-Whoooooo Oooh

The Breeders! Holy fucking shit! They sounded amazing, all soft slowcore strumming bursting into brilliantly messy distortion. I don’t think it’s the mushrooms talking when I say that “Cannonball” was high point of the day. Hell, the whole set was an unexpected peak—I need to spend some more time with the Breeders’ discography when I get home. But “Cannonball” in particular was just nasty as hell, the chorus all delayed distortion, vocal fuzz, guitars careening almost out of whack. Most impressive was how easily the band shifted from composed quiet to massive aural assault—I know, I know, loud/quiet/loud. Whatever. It still kills.
