Pavement announce ‘Westing (By Musket And Sextant)’ vinyl reissue

It's a very Pavement year. We've already had the long-awaited deluxe edition of Terror Twilight a 30th anniversary vinyl repress of Slanted and Enchanted, the 25th anniversary of Brighten the Corners, and the band's upcoming reunion tour. Adding to that, they've just announced a reissue of 1993's Westing (By Musket and Sextant), their compilation of early singles and EPs, including their classic debut EP, Slay Tracks. It will be out July 15 as part of Matador's Revisionist History series and you can pre-order the vinyl now.

You can also pick up lot of other Pavement vinyl in the BV shop.

We talked to Destroyer's Dan Bejar, Nada Surf's Matthew Caws, and more about Pavement's enduring influence. We also rounded up some of the best Pavement covers by other artists.

Pavement's reunion tour kicks off Monday in Los Angeles and includes NYC shows at Kings Theatre on September 30 and October 1, 2, and 3. All dates are listed below.
