Published Apr 24, 2009Hey, look, it's Kim and Kelley Deal screen-printing their new EP!
As we previously reported, the Breeders have chosen to self-release a new record because according to them, "It seems that now, more than at any other time in the past, we could put the music out ourselves - hand-screen some cool artwork ourselves, sell the EPs at our shows and on our website, as well as get them to traditional record stores and other online outlets. So we're just going to press up 1,000 twelve-inch vinyls."
Well, Fate to Fatal is now officially out. And as Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound) wrote on his blog, "it rules." (The stripped down cover of Bob Marley's "Chances Are" is especially fantastic.) But if you were hoping to get your mitts on one of the 1,000 slabs of vinyl the band hand-packaged and screened themselves, well, sorry, they're all gone, says their website. But they've been nice enough to give away the title track and single, which you can grab here.
Best of all, though, is the video for the song (directed by Mando and James Ford), which stars the fabulously pink St. Louis Arch Rivals Rollergirl team knocking around each other at their hometown's Skatium. Though I must say, that synth didn't deserve to go out like that.
