I never really liked Pavement. Sure, I’d always feign appreciation for them for fear of losing face in front of my peers (the other music snobs), but the truth is they didn’t ever impress me. Their sound just felt too disjointed, their lyrics didn’t feel original or earnest or insightful, and I can vaguely remember on my first listen thinking that the singer sounded like an irritating variation of Travis Morrison. Of course, now I know that that singer was Stephen Malkmus…and that by a large part of the indie community, he’s seen as a genius. So I briefly thought about how much better Elliott Smith albums were than Smith’s first band Heatmiser…and I decided a chance for redemption was in order.
