Posting this as I ended up listening to some pavement today, finding out that they've reformed for a tour and are currently down my way right at this moment [!]
Nice to think about going to the gig, but not too interested - they're not recording anything new, which makes it a nostagia tour. Good to have seen them live back in the day though. They have music on bandcamp but not this one which is what comes to mind.
Not surprising since the record stores are mostly vinyl with a small portion left for cds (and dvds) a complete turnaround. The prices for some albums here can quite pricey on vinyl. Happy to see it taking off though, there is something quite ritualistic with the process of playing a record.
Also love the two sided nature that was kind of lost with a single cd.
