St. Louis is frequently a flyover city for national touring bands, but that’s not the case with the Breeders. They have love for us, and it’s documented: The band returns to town on Friday for the first time since filming a music video here in February, a clip which starred our own female roller-derby league, the Arch Rival Roller Girls. The song in the video, “Fate to Fatal,” is the lead track off of the band’s limited edition EP of the same name. Like 2008’s Mountain Battles, the new EP showcases the same candy-coated indie-pop harmonies that made the band so magnetic during its first wave of success in the ’90s. It’s been nearly twenty years since its first album, Pod, and it’s clear that the Breeders haven’t lost any of its magic.
