by Matador

Seminal and recently reunited act Pavement has announced the tracklisting for their upcoming best-of collection. Quarantine the Past is slated for a March 9, 2010 release through Matador Records and will compile material from 1989-1999, with the label adding that the release will contain songs "from the scratchy and mysterious sounds of their early vinyl-only releases to the rich, multilayered warmth of their final recordings. Although the compilation does not include any unreleased material, it definitely digs deeper than the hits." Check out the cover art here. Matador also plans to reissue all of the band's entire label catalogue on vinyl on the same day.
