It was a mere 40 minutes long, but the Breeders' Last Splash made huge waves in the pool of our '90s consciousness. In fact, it's still lounging out there on its floaty, with strawberry daiquiri firmly in hand, showing all the fresh young cabana boys and girls how to do it. It's been 20 years and that shit still sounds fantastic. Reverb clings all over the Breeders' 1993 sophomore classic in a huge fuzzy tangle of psychedelic noise and layered bits of lullaby, like drowning in a hook-filled deep end. The band's original album lineup is touring for Last Splash's anniversary with a deluxe 4AD re-issue of the album called LSXX—a three-CD or seven-disc vinyl set with all the bells and whistles, like B-sides and live recordings. (Who knew vinyl was the appropriate 20-year anniversary gift?!) For the first time since 1994, Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson will be on deck to dish out the nostalgic trippy delights. It's going to be quite the luau at the Wonder tonight. Go say aloha! COURTNEY FERGUSON
