Song of the Day: 'Istanbul' by the Breeders

I'm starting to realize I didn't give the (fake) Breeders enough credit for their 2008 LP,  "Mountain Battles." But ever since I saw them perform "Night of Joy" and "Bang On" -- which meshed effortlessly with their back catalogue -- on the band’s recent stop at Bowery Ballroom, the album's been in heavy rotation over here. While it's great that the classic lineup is back together -- "All Nerve" is fantastic -- “Mountain Battles" might just be the second-best thing Kim Deal's ever done, after "Last Splash." This is one of the odder songs, which makes it all the better.
