American Water and Starlite Walker are wonderful. We Are Real gets me every time.

Haha, you do know that the only similarity between Pavement and Silver Jews was that both had Stephen Malkmus.

Yeah these two are great. I've also heard The Natural Bridge and Bright Flight but those two pale in comparison for me. I haven't heard the more recent two.

Eh, his last two have been letdowns for me. Patchy stuff to say the least.

Dallas from The Natural Bridge is also wonderful.

"How'd you turn a billion steers into buildings made of mirrors?" Can't say enough about Berman.

I think for me it was the moment thats now attached to the song that really sold it for me.

It was the first year I was living out on my own, I was jsut getting out of my terrible nu-metal bubble and I went with some friends to this thrift store that had this underground feel; its this old factory from the 1800's and its interior rotting-wood walls were all painted bright pink. They had these cheesy chandeliers hanging with those orange christmas bulbs and it was raining out that day.

Everyone sort of moved around like slugs and the song just fit like a glove. I'll always been 21 at the garmet district when i hear that song.

Ah, love reading about moments like these and having them myself from time to time. The circumstances surrounding a listening experience really do have quite an impact on how an album/song registers.

My first taste of Joos material was far less interesting. Just borrowed American Water from a friend and was hooked the second Berman uttered "In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection". There's such warmth in his delivery.
