The perfect antidote to SHOUTY ANGRY MUSIC is to do something a little more…melodic. And iconic. Which is why we’re doing Pod, the debut album by The Breeders.

Something of a supergroup, The Breeders were formed when Kim Deal, feeling unfulfilled by her role in The Pixies, decided to put a band together to showcase the material she’d written. After sending a demo tape to 4AD, the rest is history.

Recorded by Steve Albini at Palladium Studios in Edinburgh, it’s a stunningly consisted, and assured, debut. Even Steve thinks this is one of his best records! It is an album that is, by all accounts, pretty bloody good.

But is it their unsung classic? You decide.
