Say It Elsewhere

Here is a quick survey of relevant culture for relevant people doing relevant things:

Weekly Tape Deck posted a fiyah collaboration between Big Boi and Gucci Mane.  Go grab your “Shine Blockas” here.

Crawdaddy has some tantalizing news about the new XTC reissues here.

The Quietus talks to Bob Nastonovich about that upcoming Pavement reunion that nobody has been excited about (sarcasm).  Sadly, it appears this will not be a full-time reunion.  Click here for more.

Slate thinks NPR’s musical tastes are a little too white.  The proof is right here.

Swan Fungus posted Jackie-O Motherfucker’s extremely rare (300 copies, dude) double album, Flat Fixed.  Get fucked here.

Stereogum has Fever Ray’s cover of Nick Cave’s “Stranger Than Kindness” streaming right over here.

Passion of the Weiss discusses (and posts) People Under the Stairs’ slept-on video for “Trippin’ at the Disco”.  Groove here.

Bradford Cox posted a creepy-ass video of a cloud over Moscow here.

ABC News has a video review of Neon Indian’s incredible new album here.

Big Stereo posted the video for Peaches’ “I Feel Cream”, which is easily one of my favorite songs of the year.  Cream here.

Pavement – “Major Leagues” (1999)

This alternate video was directed by Lance Bangs — whose resume boasts videos for Sonic Youth’s “The Diamond Sea,” GBV’s “Game of Pricks,” and a slew of other greats — and, while keeping with Pavement’s affinity for the absurd, captures the dreamy, pensive nostalgia of this Terror Twilight standout:


The Kids Are Alright

I had to post this video, cuz it gives me some good ol’ Obama hope for the future of America:

See, in the future, the Youth will know Pavement songs AND karate!  The terrorists stand no chance!

Edit: After posting this, I did a Google search and discovered that Stereogum had already posted this video a few months ago.  (Of course).  My apologies for the unintentional syndication, but I think it deserves a second run in the ol’ blogosphere. 

Pavement – In the Mouth a Desert (Live, 1992)

In anticipation of the new Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks album, here’s a clip of the best American band of the ’90s playing at Reading ’92.  This one is dedicated to Sarah.
