The Breeders (1993)
For those inclined to moan about getting old every time a cherished indie-rock album reaches a milestone, be forewarned that Last Splash, the breakthrough LP for sometime Pixie Kim Deal and her spin-off band, the Breeders, turned 20 a few months back. Even so, the reunited lineup of Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson is still rocking with insouciantly punky cool. Nostalgists are in for a treat here, as the group performs both Last Splash and its predecessor, Pod, in full. Opening is the buzzy Speedy Ortiz, which sets the singsongy vocals of Sadie Dupuis against a field of gnarled, roaring guitars.
