Originally conceived as a solo album from that dog. frontwoman Anna Waronker, the third studio LP from the band arrived polished, constructed and aerodynamic for the late 90's post-grunge haze it emerged from.
While gems like ''Hawthorne'' quaintly imagine punk rock shows in car garages and ''Minneapolis'' recalls the ''I only saw her for one second'' ephemeral beauty of Citizen Kane, the album itself traverses a myriad of emotions and counts among its fans both Pat Smear of the Germs and the Vivian Girls.
Touring in support for Retreat had that dog sharing stages with the likes of Counting Crows, The Wallfl owers and Blur. A deep interview by Matt Pinfi eld on MTV's 120 Minutes provided prime underground exposure. Boosted by a glossy music video, ''Never Say Never'' even found its way onto the Billboard Modern Rock charts. While a picture disc version of alternate mixes was selfreleased by the band 2017, this is the fi rst-ever vinyl release of this album.
