As nice as it was to have the Pixies back, I also missed the Breeders. It's been six years since we've heard from them and even then, it was a skeletal album that had to keep us going. Now they're returning with a fuller sound, new album and a tour. Life is good. Want a pre-release preview of the new record? You can listen to three samples from Mountain Battles courtesy of the nice folks at Rough Trade.
