    The Secret History, Vol. 1

    The strangest thing about Pavement? Not that there were ever many non-strange things about Pavement? Even though they made their era's finest rock albums, the albums only told half their story. Pavement also made some of the Nineties' best albums that *never* happened. Until now.


    Pavement made five proper album-as-albums: Slanted and Enchanted (1992), Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain (1994), Wowee Zowee (1995), Brighten The Corners (1997) and Terror Twilight (1999). Each has its own sound. Each has its own legend. But each of their official albums has a shadow album-and it's usually as strong as the album that actually *did* come out. It's time for the world to hear the albums Pavement could have made, if they'd been a little less ambitious about music and a little more ambitious about the music business. If they'd been the kind of band to sweat the legacy. But if they were that kind of band, would they have written so many great songs? Much less *these* great songs? No.


    Matador is finally releasing a series of these shadow albums. The first, naturally, is *The Secret History Vol. 1*, collecting the songs that got away during the era of Slanted and Enchanted, which Stephen Malkmus, Scott Kannberg and Gary Young recorded on the cheaper-than-cheap in January 1991. *Secret Slanted History* collects gems from Peel Sessions ("Kentucky Cocktail," "Circa 1762") and seven-inches ("Baptist Blacktick") as well as live slop from the first European tours, with Mark Ibold and Bob Nastanovich in the fold. Some are outtakes from *Slanted*-imagine leaving these tunes off your first album, when as far as you know or imagine, it's your *only* album. These tracks (some of which had never been rumored among Pavement freaks) came out on the 2002 *Slanted and Enchanted* reissue. But they've never been separately available as an album in their own right, and many of them have never been on vinyl before.


    The rarities collected here could have been-or maybe even should have been-cobbled together into a quickie stopgap album, a Slantedsequel.

    Mirror Traffic


    Produced by Beck


    Coming off a triumphant year of Pavement reunion shows, Stephen Malkmus has returned to the studio with Beck producing to record his fifth solo album, Mirror Traffic. Early press reactions are already calling this gorgeous, crystalline production the album weve been waiting 10 years for him to make, and it certainly contains the most heartfelt and indelible songs hes written in years. Gone are the long guitar workouts and jams that marked the last couple of Jicks albums, replaced by incredibly
    catchy and endearing pop songs.


    Recorded in Becks studio over a period of two years, the 15-track album ranges from hard-rocking political commentary (Senator), to touching, winsome folk (No One Is), to astonishingly virtuosic but melancholy and contrite kiwi pop (Stick Figures In Love). The sonics are stunningly clear and impactful, while the lyrics are as inventive as ever but more meaningful than they have been since Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.

    Born With Stripes

    San Diegos The Donkeys strike a balance of smiling, surfer mysticism and winking, slacker mystique. They reanimate the charming hallmarks of sunshine-rock past without being sepia-toned retro or bubblegum-cloying. There is an innate playfulness and honesty to the music they make. Its a dynamic that has made public champions of keen-eared musicians like John Darnielle (Mountain Goats) and Craig Finn (The Hold Steady). It was Darnielle who claimed The Donkeys were benevolent keepers of what he called The Antidote to an unnamed sickness plaguing indie rock.


    Born With Stripes is an altogether less twangy affair than the bands 2008 Dead Oceans debut, Living On The Other Side. The nods to Grateful Dead and Buffalo Springfield are better balanced with echoes of other Cali arists, notably Pavement and Beck. The country-rock flairs are often overtaken by powerpop hooks. What some might call a lazy melody is really just a melody on its own clock. Nice and relaxed.


    Ceiling Tan, feels like a lost weekend in Tijuana with Mutations and Crooked Rain, and may well be the bands mission statement. I Like The Way You Walk also cops a 90s alt-rock lick, but ditches any esoterica for earnest yearnings and sweet nothings.


    What makes the Donkeys so potent is not their ability to rehash the past, its that their records embody a pureness, an authenticity that is unmatched in contemporary music. We were not the only ones to feel this undeniable connection. The Donkeys had a brush with Hollywood when Lost producer Eddy Kitsis heard the band, and cast them as Geronimo Jackson, a band he had written into the Lost story as an obscure San Francisco band from the 70s, who were peers of the Grateful Dead. Kitsis heard the Donkeys and felt they so embodied this fictitious band, that he actually had the band re-record their song Excelsior Lady as Dharma Lady and weaved it into the TV show.


    The album was mixed by Pernice Brothers Thom Monahan, whose involvement not only gives us the crispest, warmest Donkeys recordings to date, it also serves to remind us of the bands loose connections to an array of psych-dappled kindred spirits: Vetiver, Papercuts, BrightblackMorning Light, Devendra Banhart. Monahan was not the only outsider the band collaborated with on Born With Stripes. The playful album artwork was created by California illustrator and cartoonist Tony Millionaire, best known for his comics Maakies and Sock Monkey, and as the creator of the Adult Swim show Drinky Crow.

    Grammy-Winning Folk-Roots Masterwork: Newly Remastered and Available for the First Time Ever on Vinyl


    No Contemporary Band Better Merged Pop Hooks With Bluegrass Craft: Flatts & Scruggs Rubbing Shoulders With the Beatles


    2003 Grammy Award Winner for Best Contemporary Folk Album Presents Chris Thile, Sara Watkins, and Co. in Supreme Fidelity


    Produced by Alison Krauss: You-Are-There Acoustic Imaging, Organic Warmth, Extraordinary Textures


    Also Available on Remastered 2LP Sets: Nickel Creek and Why Should The Fire Die?


    An inimitable merger of pop hooks, bluegrass craft, virtuosic musicianship, and unbeatable acoustic sounds, 2002's This Side is the Grammy-winning sophomore record from the bluegrass/progressive folk trio Nickel Creek. Produced by mentor Alison Krauss, as was the group's 1999 breakthrough predecessor Nickel Creek, This Side finds permanent members Chris Thile (mandolin), Sara Watkins (fiddle) and Sean Watkins (guitar) expanding their sound and becoming the most original and inventive bluegrass band of modern times in the process.


    The Absolute Sound's Neil Gader captured the group's appeal, stating: The charm of this Southern Cal-based band stems from its fresh challenge to our preconceptions of homespun musical genres like folk and bluegrassNickel Creek simultaneously honors old-world traditions while respinning them with contemporary country-pop hooks and hill-country accents. Here, the echoes of bluegrass legends Flatt & Scruggs and The Dillards rub shoulders with those of the Beatles and Eagles. With Sara Watkins on violin and Sean Watkins on guitar (both sing lead as well), Nickel Creek offers crisp ensemble playing, but its Chris Thiles mandolin virtuosity and quirky singing that puts the caffeine in the coffee and keeps it percolating. Highlights include a cover of Pavement's Spit on a Stranger and originals Speak and Beauty and the Mess.


    The production values are exceptionally high, reflecting the intense musicality of producer and iconic newgrass artist Alison Krauss. The instrumental envelope, acoustic properties, rich body, and vocal presence on this pressing need to be experienced by every fan of acoustic music, Americana, and folk. These newly remastered Nickel Creek LP pressings blow the great-sounding SACD counterparts away. In addition, the gatefold packing looks incredible.

    Whole

    Chicago heavy rockers SOIL release their sixth studio album Whole via Pavement Entertainment. It's the band's first 100% independent release.


    We wanted to call all the shots on this album and, for the first time ever, hold our future in our own hands, explains bassist Tim King.


    Whole is the first SOIL album with original frontman Ryan McCombs since 2004's Re.De.Fine (after which he joined DROWNING POOL). It sees SOIL returning to its classic sound that fans have come to admire, with a pres release calling it the CD that could have come directly after the 'Scars' album in 2001."


    Following the 2012 release of its first-ever live DVD, Re-LIVE-ing The Scars, SOIL began writing new material and entered the studio in February 2013 with producer Ulrich Wild (PANTERA, BREAKING BENJAMIN) to begin recording.


    This was by far the most comfortable and natural recording process we have ever experienced, says guitarist Adam Zadel. From the writing, pre-production, and through the main tracking and mixing, everything was smooth and fluid.


    Songs featured on Whole include The Hate Song, Loaded Gun, Way Gone and Shine On, which is dedicated to the SOIL fans for standing by the band throughout the years. Another track, Amalgamation, sees McCombs taking songtitles from both the SOIL and DROWNING POOL releases he was a part of and weaving them into verses of the song.


    I think, lyrically speaking, those that are familiar with the work I've done are going to get the next chapter that they would expect, McCombs says about the lyrical process. Words from a heart and mind that has lived them.


    One of the greatest things I experience as a lyricist is when people come up and share with me how a song, or a specific verse or line from a song, got them through a hard time or times in their lives. It reminds me of the times music did that for me and how powerful music and/or a lyric can be in a person's life.


    Drums and percussion on Whole were performed by Will Hunt (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, EVANESCENCE, DEVICE).


    Will added a whole new dimension to the songs, states King. He added a monstrous and aggressive vibe to the album.


    A guest guitar solo on Wake Up was performed by longtime friend Mike Mushok of the band STAIND.

    Wig Out At Jagbags

    Probably the most underrated guitar player of his
    generation - Rolling Stone


    Wig Out At Jagbags is Stephen Malkmus' sixth
    solo effort with the Jicks and finds the former
    Pavement leader (alongside Joanna Bolme, Jake
    Morris & Mike Clark) at his most playful and
    joyous in recent memory. The album, written
    in Berlin & recorded in Belgium with longtime
    Pavement and Jicks associate Remko Schouten is
    a looser, more unbridled affair that gathers those
    trademark guitar moves and lyrical acrobatics into
    an amalgam of what SM himself calls: "Projected
    Imaginings of ROck and ROll from the freezing
    north, rendered by West Coast stalwarts and a
    Dutch Uncle".


    Malkmus, having lived in Berlin for the past 2
    years, combines the manical wizadry of Can
    (who Malkmus covered for Record Store Day last
    year) and the West Coast imaginings of Jefferson
    Airplane. Malkmus also cites "Cologne Germany,
    Mark Von Schlegel, Rosemarie Trockel, Von Sparr
    and Jan Lankisch, Can and Gas. Imagined Weezer/
    Chili Peppers, SIc Alps, UVA in the late 80's, NYRB,
    Aroma Charlottenburg, inactivity, Jamming, Indie
    guys trying to sound Memphis, Flipper, Pete
    Townshend, Pavement, the Joggers, The NBA,
    home life in the 2010's " as inspiration.


    As it spans nods to the embryonic days of college
    rock on "Lariat", (see those Bongwater and Sun
    City Girls shoutouts), the galloping guitars and
    horns on "Chartjunk" and arrives at the rallying
    coda of "Surreal Teenagers", Wig Out At Jagbags is
    a portrait of an an American master stretching out
    & showing no signs of slowing down.

    In The Pink Of Condition

    Recorded at Seahorse Sound Studios in LA and produced by long-time cohort, fellow Welsh ÉmigrÉ and musical maven Cate le Bon, In the Pink Of Condition is his 3rd album, following 2010's A Cup Of Salt and 2011's The Strange Uses Of Ox Gall.


    An album of "strange pop" (words borrowed from Huw) it's a controlled explosion of lazer-guided guitar melody - think a careering Television show or Pavement outside the original site of Spillers - and whip smart bi-lingual wordplay.


    Although reluctant to cite a shopping list's worth of influences, Huw nods to two permanent inspirations - the maverick U.S. author Richard Brautigan (the Hawkline name appropriated from Brautigan's 1974 'gothic western' The Hawkline Monster) and a just-turned-solo Paul McCartney (Huw namechecks Ram, an album coincidentally recorded when the once-and-future Beatle was also twenty-nine). From the former, a wistful ways with words - songs constructed as slices of life, surrealist observations on the everyday. From the latter - what else would one ask for other than a just smidgeon of MCCartney's six sense for abundant, tumbling melody?

    Land

    Novella's formation was the result of an instant spark-guitarist Hollie Warren,
    guitarist Sophy Hollington, and bassist Suki Sou met through mutual friends in
    Brighton in 2010, where they quickly realized that they shared a common
    love for '60s counterculture and bands like Black Sabbath, the Brian Jonestown
    Massacre, and Pale Saints. The addition of drummer Iain Laws in 2011
    and keyboardist Isabel Spurgeon in 2014 solidified the group into a propulsive
    engine, capable of welding woozy, cosmic psychedelia to sustained
    squalls of flanged-out, far-out dream pop. Novella's debut album, Land, is a
    controlled blast of mainlined electricity, a tempest of relentless groove and
    crystalline vocals that is at once the vicious edge and the calm eye of the
    storm.


    Recorded during one ice-cold week in January of 2014 by Jonas Verijnen
    (Moon Duo, Ballet School) and Joshua Third (The Horrors) in an abandoned
    clothing factory-turned-studio in Dalston, East London, Land perfectly absorbs
    the band's vast array of influences and transforms them into songs
    that Fact Magazine described as "equal parts effete jangle and ferocious
    riffage." Combining London gloom and cosmic escapism, Sou and Laws
    channel Can and the 13th Floor Elevators on the krautrock-inspired jams like
    "Follow" and "Something Must Change," while Warren and Hollington stomp
    their homemade flanger and phaser pedals to create dueling arcs of electric
    guitars. As the band churns and riffs, the girls' voices soar brilliantly, their
    glassy clarity recalling the Lynchian shoegaze of Lush or Stereolab. During
    quieter, more reflective songs like "Sentences" and "Younger Than Yesterday,"
    there are echoes of eerie psychedelia like Broadcast, evident in the myriad
    of flutes, synths, and Fender Electric XII guitars.


    On Land, Novella captures the wild spirit of creating something new from
    pieces of the past. They ward off the overcast London melancholy with
    evocative tales of weightless meandering, of drifting over the pavement of
    familiar streets while dreaming about exploring fantastical alien landscapes.
    These are the yarns of twenty-somethings in limbo, a collection of late night
    tales that more often end in avoided glances than locked eyes

    The Early Four Track Recordings

    The Early Four Track Recordings features some of the most memorable and immediate moments of Kevin Barnes' career, predating the moment before Of Montreal was a realized band and brings to mind the intimacy and immediacy of early Sebadoh, Pavement, and Guided by Voices albums. As fans should expect, these songs are heavily influenced by 1960s sunshine pop, with plenty of quirky weirdness and lo-fi aesthetics tossed in to keep things fresh. Never before released on vinyl.

    Somewhere On The Golden Coast

    This LA bands 2nd album is a remarkable set of classic-sounding indie-rock with clear echoes of Pavement, the Hold Steady, the Replacements and early Built to Spill, but they find their own voice with detailed songs that split the difference between sardonic and heartfelt when describing the music scene, living in debt and working part-time, transforming everyday subject matter into raging, celebratory anthems for slacker rock n rollers and other folks just trying to make ends meet. - KEXP

    Their debut is an expertly crafted indie pop gem. Spin declared the Missouri band could succeed The Shins. Then a slew of bloggers ranked them ahead of Wilco and Iron & Wine in Leafblower's annual Top Bands Of America Today. Broom sparkles when it rocks, has hooks galore, and should make a lasting impression. Think The Shins, Pavement, Of Montreal, and Elliott Smith. One of those rare albums where every song is crafted, delicious, and essential - SF Weekly.

    Noisy and experimental, Britain's Swell Maps experienced little commercial success during the course of their chaotic career, but in hindsight they stand as one of the pivotal acts of the new wave: not only was the group an acknowledged inspiration to the likes of Sonic Youth and Pavement, but their alumni - most notably brothers Nikki Sudden and Epic Soundtracks - continued on as key players in the underground music community.

    The moment you hear her voice you realize this is someone special. Critically acclaimed U.K. soul singer Adele releases her debut album 19 in the U.S. after debuting #1 on the U.K. charts. The first single, Chasing Pavements, characterizes her autobiographical approach, written after a brawl in a London club with her boyfriend which sent her fleeing out the door onto Oxford Street. Adele became the first recipient of the Brit Awards' newly inaugurated Critics Choice Honor in December and 19 has already been certified platinum in the U.K.

    Let The Poison Out

    Over the course of four years, the Beets have released two lps and three singles for NY label Captured Tracks, toured nationally with Vivian Girls, the Mountain Goats, shared the stage with Pavement, and have been featured on the Howard Stern show twice! Let the Poison Out was captured on tape by Gary Olson of Ladybug Transistor at Marlborough Farms and finds the Beets shaking off the lo-fi brashness of their first two lps. The jangly acoustic guitar, brutal and surreal lyrics, and catchy and breezy sing-a-long songs that people have come to worship by the band, have remained.
