On June 23, Matador Records will finally (production delays!) be releasing the deluxe reissue of the Pavement album, Brighten the Corners, on vinyl. Back in the fall, in honor of this release and the album’s song ‘Date with IKEA’, Matador held a contest encouraging you to submit photos of your space. The prize? A date to go on a $500 IKEA shopping spree and Swedish Meatball Dinner with a member of Pavement! How cool is that?! Congrats to Jenny Bergen of New York, who got to go with Bob Nastanovich to the IKEA in Red Hook!
“…the threesome have found a sound that pays tribute to late-’80s
Brit-pop and mid-’60s American jangle rock. This infectious combination
of sounds, combined with Dooley’s clear talent for song-writing, makes
this new album his best to date.”
Open Mic on NPR
” San Francisco in the 90′s”
6 new songs produced by Jason Martin (sf59).
This new ep finds Map at their very best. The songs are poppy and
melancholy at the same time, the hooks are up front and Dooleys beautiful
guitar work shines through as always. San Francisco in the 90′s is a Map
