Boomkat Product Review:
Not gonna lie, we’ve been obsessed with this record and its Shinro Ohtake’s drawn cover since 1992 when it was released. Alongside Pod, this is the best Breeders record and for us one of the finest EP’s of the 90’s.
It’s all there if you watch the video clip for ‘Safari’ - a gloriously lo-fi green screen travesty (oddly reminiscent of Prince’s Alphabet Street video) that captures the era and the genius of this band so well. Much like Pod, the material on Safari has aged so well; guitar, bass and drums stripped bare and augmented by Kim’s unique vocal style, complete with staggered breathing chorus on the title track, reaching an apex on ‘Don’t Call Home’ - at once anthemic and deadpan, so damn good.
