The 10 Best Pavement Music Videos #Music #MusicMonday #MusicVideo
One of the redeeming aspects of sweltering through NYC summers has always been the music. If you are missing live music too, check out this list from Paste. Pavement was [is] a band doing the diy thing before it was cool.
One of Pavement’s defining traits was their apparent ambivalence towards the music business. Obviously you have to be somewhat career-minded to start a successful band that gets played on the radio and MTV and that kicks off a legitimate lifelong career (at least for one member), but Pavement were transparently disinterested in the alt-rock feeding frenzy of the early ‘90s. To this day, over 30 years into his career, Malkmus remains on Matador Records, the same independent label that released Pavement’s albums. They got hit hard with the “slacker” tag in the ‘90s—something Malkmus disliked, but also never seemed all that interested in changing—but it was more a case of them being wary about the music business and trying to find a way that made it work for them than being lazy.
