Terror Twilight
Posted at 09:46 AM


When was the last time you listened to Pavement’s Terror Twilight? We listened to it today, and just might be at the tippy toes of a pretty mean Pavement streak. All that weird wordplay and half-delivered deliveries. So good. I’m rattled by the rush.

Here’s something to think about Malkmus and his whole deal: He speaks in band names.

A small list of Malkmus-isms that could be the next rad local band you won’t be going to see:
01. Pacific Trim
02. Father to a Sister of Thought
03. Baptist Blacktick
04. Range Life
05. Starlings Of The Slipstream

Saw the guy at a barbeque last summer and it took everything in my being to leave him alone with his family. I’m a fan. My burden as a Portlander.

A good day for vinyl showing up in the mail, at the house:

01. Son Volt - Trace
02. Wheat - Hope and Adams
03. Gastr Del Sol - Crookt, Crackt or Fly

Trace on vinyl? So fucking good. I will die with that record. The best Volt album of the bunch. Even after 13 years, the thing still sounds as fresh as ever to me.

Would LOVE to experience that Wheat record on vinyl… dig that band, man.

Do you prefer Hope and Adams to Per Second… ?
