Slanted and Enchanted

Performers Pavement

Not yet rated | write a review
Pavement: Stephen Malkmus, Spiral Stairs (guitar); Gary Young (drums). Engineers include: Cy Jameson. Recorded at Louder Than You Think, Stockton, California on January 13-20, 1991 and South Makepeace Studios, Brooklyn, New York on Dec. 24, 1990. By the time SLANTED & ENCHANTED was released in 1992, Pavement had reached mythical status among indie-rock lovers. The hype had been generated by three masterful vinyl-only releases: SLAY TRACKS (7" EP), DEMOLITION PLOT J7 (7" EP) and PERFECT SOUND FOREVER (10" EP). The dissonant, often beautiful mix of noise and melody on these recordings reaches its apotheosis on SLANTED & ENCHANTED--an album that simultaneously recalls the haunted darkness of The Velvet Underground and the sheer garage pop of the Modern Lovers. SLANTED & ENCHANTED exists from moment to moment, establishing ideas even as it breaks them down, deifying its influences even as it escapes them, becoming more exciting the more you hear it. It is, in short, a rock and roll masterpiece.
