Journalists have been busily reporting that Aimee Mann and the Breeders are making appearances on Buffy this month, but the biggest news is the act that’s sandwiched between the two. Angie Hart’s haunting “Blue” stole the show last night (even though “Conversations With Dead People” was hands-down the best Buffy all season). I cannot wait until this one finds its way onto a CD.
The Breeders’ appearance was mercifully brief. It was clearly more of a gimmick than a sound musical choice, particularly in light of this week’s inspired music.
