PAVEMENT - Trigger Cuts: A Bootleg Compilation (Flac)

Between 1992 and 1999 Pavement released five studio albums: Slanted and Enchanted (1992), Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain (1994), Wowee Zowee (1995), Brighten the Corners (1997) and Terror Twilight (1999). This excellent compilation features tracks that appeared on all five of those albums.

It's a tight well crafted sequence of songs packing 21-tracks into less than 80-minutes. Ideal for those unfamiliar with this US indie band, who stayed loyal to the independent label Matador, throughout their career in the 90's.

Nearly three-quarters of this live compilation was sourced from four venues: E-Werk, Cologne / Poppodium 013, Tilburg, Netherlands / Reading Festival, England and Jay's Upstairs, Missoula, MT, US. 

If you are averse to live compilations and prefer listening to the complete live sets then I would recommend you begin with the above four shows. They are available from sites mentioned in the bootlegs of the year document.
