The Breeders Homemade Video For 'Nervous Mary'

In the middle of a busy street in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, The Breeders took a brief break from touring to shoot a homemade video for 'Nervous Mary', taken from their 2018 album All Nerve.

Puppet versions of Kim and Kelley Deal - dressed in custom outfits made by Finnish fan and professional puppet-maker Milla Risku - go wild performing the song as their real-life counterparts sing live vocals off camera. Wait for the final moments to discover the identity of the puppet-masters.

Earlier this year, The Breeders released All Nerve, their first album in a decade and their first in 25 years reuniting the iconic Last Splash line-up of Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson. It reached #2 on four Billboard charts, Top Ten in the UK charts and garnered widespread praise from critics including the New Yorker who declared, ‘the Breeders are a model not simply for the timelessness of good art – the ways in which ingenuity boomerangs – but for what women can accomplish, regardless of whether the culture ever rises up to support them.” 

 

 

 

Son Lux Rework ‘The Fool You Need’

Son Lux, the LA and NY-based band of Ryan Lott, Rafiq Bhatia and Ian Chang, have shared ‘The Fool You Need’, a redux of the single from their latest album, Brighter Wounds, released in February 2018 via City Slang.

Revisiting and reincarnating their own songs has been part of the Son Lux project since its inception, and ‘The Fool You Need’ is the latest in that tradition. The new track unwinds in unexpected turns, with lurching drums and serpentine synths giving way to haunting choir and slithering guitars. It comes accompanied by the original music video.

The follow-up to 2015's exultant and explosive LP, Bones, Brighter Wounds finds Son Lux transformed all over again. This fifth album marks another fundamental shift as Lott leaves universal themes behind to write from a personal perspective: while making these songs, he became a father and lost a family member to cancer. Days of "firsts" were also days of "lasts," and the normal fears of first-time parenthood were compounded by a frightening new reality — Lott's son was born shortly after Election Day 2016. These songs draw on all of that: warm reflections of a fading past, the pain of still-present loss, and a mix of anxiety and hope for a future promised to none.
