Because I own the 2002 Luxe & Reduxe version of the record, all of the selections so far have been from the bonus material and not the album proper. They’ve also all been pretty bad.
That might be because the only Pavement album in my library is the extended two-disc version of their celebrated 1992 release Slanted and Enchanted, which contains 49 songs, most of which are outtakes and unreleased tracks.
Let’s spin the dial and see what the Random iTunes Fairy serves up for today’s festive occasion.
Obscure Pavement song? Sorry, I got nothing.
I actually own this album — having downloaded it for free somewhere along the way — but I’ve never played it. I’ve always had a bit of a struggle getting into early alt-rockers. R.E.M. is the notable exception.
