Indie rock’s most eagerly awaited sentimental journey arrives stateside as Pavement plays two performances the next few days in southern California, with more to come from coast-to-coast this summer and fall. The reviews floating around the blogosphere have raved about the first reunion shows in New Zealand and Australia, but you’d expect that from fans who’ve been waiting over a decade for this to happen. What’s lost in the haze of nostalgia is that Pavement was a notoriously frustrating and sometimes diffident live act, though, at the very least, the set lists this go-around have definitely been crowd pleasers. Check out for yourself this edited sampler of songs from the March 1st show in Auckland, New Zealand, one of the few YouTube fan videos that’s not rendered unwatchable by a pogoing camera hand or audience sing-alongs.

Philadelphia duo Pattern is Movement and Brooklyn quartet Via Audio will be on tour together for the next month, and both bands will feature new material in their setlists. Animalore, the upcoming LP from Via Audio, is scheduled for a March 9 release through Undertow Music Collective. Pattern Is Movement offers a couple of great new original tracks and covers of songs by David Bowie, the Smiths, and Beyonce on the Light of the World EP (Hometapes). The EP is a tour-only exclusive, so you will have to see the band on one of these upcoming dates in order to get your hands on it. Tour dates are after the jump.

Deer Tick is a favorite here at PopMatters with their recent album Born on Flag Day received an 8 last June and just bubbled under our Top 60 album list last December. Andrew Gilstap raved about the album saying: “It seems to be the nature of the world to chafe at any spot of contentment in your life, and Born on Flag Day captures that sense of being at odds with your surroundings as well as any release this year. It’s a feeling of conflict that exists in every part of the band’s music: the faster songs feel like they’re about to run off the rails, sharp lyrics lurk in the slower songs just waiting for their chance to cut to the bone, and vocalist John Joseph McCauley conveys it all with an acute, nasally rasp.”


So, we’re excited to announce that Deer Tick will be playing a free show next Wednesday (3 March) in San Francisco at The Independent. The show is being presented exclusively by T-Mobile® myTouch™ 3G Fender™ Limited Edition and will begin at 9.00pm, with the doors opening at 8.00pm. Entry into the show is first come, first served, so best to start queueing early. You can drop a line to mogshows.deertick@gmail.com to let them know you plan on coming, but it’s no guarantee of admission, so get down there the earliest you can.


- Deer Tick
- Free
- 3 March @ The Independent, San Francisco

Xiu Xiu
Dear God, I Hate Myself
(Kill Rock Stars)
Releasing: 23 February


There’s a new Xiu Xiu album coming out, which I don’t suspect anybody is too excited about, more so that people are awaiting its release in some religious, jaw-clenching fugue state. That’s music for you, though. Some people like to enjoy it, others like to let it motivate their affected agony to tortured, romantic climax.


SONG LIST
01 Gray Death
02 Chocolate Makes You Happy
03 Apple for a Brain
04 House Sparrow
05 Hyunhye’s Theme
06 Dear God, I Hate Myself
07 Secret Motel
08 Falkland Rd.
09 The Fabrizio Palumbo Retaliation
10 Cumberland Gap
11 This Too Shall Pass Away (For Freddy)
12 Impossible Feeling


“This Too Shall Pass Away (For Freddy)” [MP3]
