Depraved Fan Girls

I seem to be attracted to people who consume media at an alarming rate. Today I came across a post from my friend Michaela about Pavement:
james carter, cyrus chesnutt, ali jackson, and reginald veal have put out a record (gold sounds) of pavement covers.

now that's more like it; jazz versions of pavement i can definitely handle. it helps that i think mr. carter and mr. chesnutt are fucking geniuses.

stream "cut yr. hair" at the brown brothers recordings website... hearing the 'do do do do do do, do do do do-ah!" rendered in scat over a wailing sax and thumping organ at the end of the track has totally made my day. seriously.


Turns out, Michaela and a few others have been doing a blog, mostly pertaining to the live music scene that constantly flows through Austin at http://www.depravedfangirls.org/. Check it out.

Hey Tina! Thanks for the shout out.

I should give a little back story -- I've been struggling to "get" Pavement for years and it's become a running gag among my friends lately! Hence my delight at finding a palatable way to consume their work.
