Bigs news that Pavement has reunited for a brief tour, including a 4-night stand in Central Park.
Maybe I had to hit just the right age, but I was never really into Pavement until recently. I remember giving their albums a listen early in my high school days and just wasn’t feeling it. Fast forward to 2009 and I “picked up” their albums for another go round. Now, listening to their music reminds me of a lot of the parts about new, current rock music that I love, but they just do those things better than bands of today. Elements of country and grunge co-mingle on Terror Twilight and Wowee Zowee in a way that isn’t at odds, but is just good ol’ rock ‘n roll.
Pavement – “Cream of Gold”
Pavement – “Rattled by the Rush”
