Pavement Greatest-Hits Tracklist Announced; Wowee Zowee Hella Shafted
So a 23-track best-of from everyone's favorite Coachella-headlining, Central Park-invading, reunited indie-rock demi-gods will drop on March 9, and after some initial guess-the-tracklist fanfare, Matador has finally revealed the real thing. Not bad, I suppose, but twice as many from Brighten the Corners as Wowee Zowee? Is that song about R.E.M. from No Alternative gonna hold up? "Two States"?
