Kim Deal (the Breeders, the Amps, Pixies) Talks with Courtney Barnett for The Talkhouse Music Podcast

In a wide-ranging conversation, these two acclaimed rockers get silly — and then they get deep.

In this episode of The Talkhouse Music Podcast, two great rock songwriters, Courtney Barnett and Kim Deal — of iconic alt-rockers the Breeders — get together, have a few laughs and talk about hearing the sound of your own voice, obsessing in the studio, the relationship between drugs and creativity, touring and seeing the world, what it’s like to be 27, and playing guitar upside down.  Don’t miss Kim’s imitations of English people speaking French. And she just may have come up with the title of Courtney’s next album.

Kim Deal has a 7-inch solo series. Related bands:  the Breeders/the Amps/Pixies.


Courtney Barnett is an Australian singer-songwriter. Her acclaimed new album, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, is available now. You can follow her on Twitter here.
