Will Eno has a fantastic profile of the soon-to-be reunited Pavement over at Relix. It's a must read.
I really like the part of the article where Eno parses "Silence Kit," which, gun to my head, I would say is my favorite Pavement song.
Also, I liked this quote:
[Bob] Nastanovich, ever bright and sunny, is excited and slightly apprehensive, as the band will probably be playing to larger audiences than they were ever used to: “Since the band stopped, I think we’re more popular than we were when we actually existed.”
This idea reminds me of how everyone reacted when the Pixies reunited. I hope this goes better than that.
