Christina’s Takes – Pacer

Preconceived Notions: I absolutely idolize Kim Deal (and Kim Gordon, but that wasn’t until high school). I love The Pixies to death so I was into her side projects as well. After The Pixies broke up, The Breeders proved Kim Deal didn’t need Frank Black. After The Breeders broke up because of Kelly Deal’s heroin addiction, The Amps proved Kim didn’t need Kelly to continue either.

After listening: It’s a cool album. Reminds me of Pod, which is my favorite album by The Breeders.

Favorite tracks: Tipp City, Full On Idle, Breaking the Split Screen Barrier, She’s a Girl
Least Favorite: Empty Glasses

Overall: 4.5

Kim Deal was a member of a band in the 1980’s that was way ahead of its time and paved the way for other bands that wouldn’t break out until after The Pixies had broken up around 91 or so. Kim Deal continues to be awesome. I hope she never stops making music. I hope The Pixies tour forever until one of them croaks.

Record Club began in the cold, dank, snowmageddon scene that was New England of January 2011. We’re probably no different than you. We all work in cubicles, some in smaller, less private cubicles than others; that just means we have to be even sneakier about how we listen to our music. But we have to listen to our music, mostly as a way of saving our own personal sanity. Sometimes our opinions lead us to debates that may or may not be published in their entirety on this site, but I can promise you’ll at least get a glimpse of the way our minds work. The main goal is to find new music we like or find old music that we didn’t know we liked. Sometimes we succeed, sometimes it’s a total and complete disaster. After our ears have rejoiced or stopped bleeding we try something else. This is our pattern, every Tuesday and Thursday. Sometimes, when the club isn’t officially in session, just to keep everyone on their toes, we throw in a theme day. We’re beginning to run low on our original list, so please, if you have albums that you’d like us to review or themes that you’d like to see our playlist of, feel free to contribute. After all, we’re all in this together once we punch the time clock. So if you’re busy (or just plain bored) lurking in your cubicle as you read this join in. After all, life wasn’t meant to be lived staring at a computer screen. I guarantee you, it’s at least more fun when you plug the headphones in.
