Pavement’s Secret History Heads Our First Retro-Loop


pavement

With the adoption of streaming as the industry’s new method for commercializing music and the significant changes on the way we consume it that entails, the playlist seems to be now the format of choice and new and old music are nearly on par when it comes to delivery. That’s why we begin this new section to highlight our recent musical discoveries or rediscoveries from the vaults. Either part of one of those playlists; synced on a film’s soundtrack; included on a compilation; reissued on vinyl or in any of the multiple “deluxe” editions available in the market; unearthed by the artist or simply bumped into by luck, here’s our list of music gems recently rescued from the past.

Nineties alternative kings Pavement top our first Retro-Loop with “Sue Me Jack”, one of the rarities included in “The Secret History, Vol. 1” compilation. Other recent revisited acts also featured are AFX; Lizzie Mercier Descloux; Jackson C. Frank; Mark Lanegan; The Replacements; Tim Maia and a dark Four Tet club classic sampling Cheryl Cole and Ellie Goulding.
