"Here," "Gold Soundz," "Cut Your Hair," "Range Life," and "Fillmore Jive" are all totally great, though.
same here
do really enjoy their stuff

I checked out Pavement simply because it seems every second review of seminal Dunedin Sound band The Clean says something along the lines of "Malkmus adores these guys". I can't say I was terribly impressed. I can see the influence of The Clean on Pavement's style, but it just seems so watered down, like Malkmus takes ideas from The Clean's weakest tracks rather than the best.

Ah well. The Clean own. Everyone should check them out.

Grounded is such an awesome song. I think they opened with it when I saw them at one of the Brighten the Corners shows.

That riff is awesome, but it's the solo that gets me.

Also--new Malkmus next month! That thing is going to rule all. Janet Weiss on drums =

Absolutely. Whole song is great.

I still don't have any post-Pavement SM albums. Should probably fix that. (did see him and the Jicks when they opened for Radiohead, which was great)

I'm bumping this shit because I happened to stumble upon the Pavement discography. Heard a song or two in the past, but can't remember any of them. Where should I start? Chronologically?

Start with Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. Continue to Wowee Zowee, then back to Slanted & Enchanted, then forward to Brighten the Corners and Terror Twilight.

Make it so.

Yes!

Pavement thread. Yes. Pavement rullllllllllles.

They've been my most listened-to artist over the last month according to my little Last.fm account.

Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain is still my favorite. With Range Life being, quite possibly, the most intoxicating song I've ever heard in my life.

Wowee Zowee would come in second. Slanted and Enchanted a close third. And I don't own TT or BTC yet, but I've heard a number of songs off those albums and they are lovely.

Shady Lane, especially.

Great band.
