Hey Pavement Nerds: Guess the Greatest Hits Tracklist, Win Stuff

Posted By on Thu, Jan 7, 2010 at 1:05 PM

All those geeked-out discussions about what 23 tracks, exactly, will comprise Matador Record's upcoming "best of Pavement" compilation, Quarantine the Past, has become a game for the uber-fan. The one hint out already: the first song is "Gold Soundz."

The label is offering a contest whereby one psychic music nerd wins a trip to see the OG indie rockers play their first US reunion show in New York (don't worry, they'll eventually come around to their home state we imagine). The number two prize, a Pavement-fan buddy of mine recently pointed out, is better in some ways than the first. The "most imaginative track listing" (a category with some fuzzy perimeters) earns a special, limited-to-five edition vinyl pressing of their comp. And the third prize is...blah, blah, blah.

If you think you know the way this upcoming collection will or should work, Matador wants to hear from your crystal ball, cracked or otherwise, by January 19

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
