Ford’s Faves: The Breeders, The Men, Andrew W.K., INXS
Every Friday, in-house music aficionado and buyer Tim Ford graces us with his musings on the best releases of the week. Can’t get enough? He’s also somehow still allowed to run our Instagram — check it.
Faves for Mar 2, 2018:
Kim Deal already has indie rock sainthood for being in both The Pixies and The Breeders, but unlike pixies, The Breeders are welcomed back with open arms.
They don’t sound old, or tired, or cash-grabby.
They sound like they put this album out a year after LAST SPLASH, but its been 25.
Every once and a while you need a bunch of new York hipsters yelling at you through your stereo to make sure you know everything is in line with the world.
Think METZ, but less yelly. Or Japandroids, but more yelly.
You’re Not Alone
I actually haven’t heard this yet, but I like to party, so I assume it’s the best album of the year.
I wasn’t alive enough to enjoy this album when it first came out, and too hipster to enjoy it when I was in my early adulthood.
But ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ came on the radio the other night, and I wept the same way I did when my cat came back after 2 weeks of being lost.
