Okay, I've been told time and time again that I would LOVE Pavement, but I've never heard anything from them apart from Malkmus' "Jojo's Jacket".

Can anyone recommend any songs to download? Cd's to buy? Or is the DVD a good choice for a beginner?

Melz.

Pavement ist rad - buy, beg, steal, borrow as much as you can - it's all good, but in no particular order I'd recommend:
Wowee Zowee - angular guitars, obscure lyrics/ references, sweepingly gorgeous
Crooked Rain Crooked Rain - more mellow even alt. country in parts, beautiful tunes
Slanted and Enchanted (esp new edition Luxe & Reduxe) - loads of early stuff, very shouty, a bit of a Fall thing going on - not a criticism
Stephen Malkmus (self title) - mellow, jangly, just lurvely

Every album is very different from the others and yet it is all consistently fantastic. You should love it all....

Come on in the water's lovely

The new SM & The Jicks album probably deserves the mixed reviews. It's very different from the last, very experimental (in a trad. guitars, bass, keyboards sort of way) and has some tracks that last far too long. But for all that it is still worth it. Why not buy the 6 track ep they've just released 'Dark Wave'. Though it's not one of the stronger tracks, so maybe get the album instead. If you're a Pavement/ SM fan you won't be disappointed..... Promise
