It simply doesn't get any better than "Kennel District."

...Unless you're talking about "Gold Soundz" or "Summer Babe," that is.

Truthfully, I find myself bored by them.
I agree wholeheartly.

Sonic Youth couldn't write songs that good in a million years. They're better musicians, essential musical artists, but make nothing that sticks in your head. It's like indie jazz.

Agreed. With SY, the melodies just aren't there. They could never write something as catchy as Range Life.

To elaborate, since Crooked Rain, Pavement always seemed to have one foot in classic rock to a certain extent. They always knew it was about the tunes, even when deconstructing a great one.

i can't understand why pavement is so critically wanked on, i always found them boring as hell. see also: wilco

i made a pavement playlist from all their albums (save for terror twilight which i don't have) and i could only find 11 songs of theirs that i like, 5 of which were off slanted & enchanted

In the Mouth a Desert is still my favorite Pavement track even though some of the songs from Watery, Domestic come really close. It's all good though.

I think a lot of "modern indie" fans have a hard time getting into Pavement because they're expecting it to sound like what popular indie music is today.

Actually, in general I notice a lot of the "hipster indie" type crowd has very little interest in important/influential "past" artists or albums. To some degree I can understand that, as it's sometimes a bit of a bummer to get extremely into a group that doesn't exist any more, as you know you'll never be able to see them live or get new music from them.

Paul does play Replacements songs live (at least he used to), and they sound about as good as you could hope.

Haven't seen him in quite some time though. Apparently last year he accidentally drove a screwdriver through his hand and hasn't been playing anything since. Hopefully he's on the mend.

"Frontwards" is so fucking dope. I love that song. Has anybody heard the Los Campesinos! cover, which came out on Arts and Crafts' Sticking Fingers Into Sockets, this summer? It rivals the original, as far as I'm concerned--and that's high-ass praise, let me tell you.
