"Cannonball"

The Breeders - Cannonball (1993)





Ah High School nostalgia. The lyrics don't make a lot of sense, but that bass line really grooves.


After the well known Ahhooo intro, you actually get a pretty standard build up of drums, then bass, lead guitar, then rhythm; then for a real nostalgia treat, just before the vocals you get a sound that reminds everyone of my age group what getting on the internet used to entail.

The false ending, the screamed vocals, I remembered it all. The Deals' vocals are almost hypnotic, and once you throw that never-ending bass line in there, I could lose track of an afternoon listening to this, thank goodness for the shouted bridge.
