Go Back to Those Gold Soundz

Ever wondered why music used to be better years ago? That has a hard answer, but, have you wondered why music still, sometimes, manages to sound good today? That has an answer, and this is, the existence of bands like Pavement on the 90s. When you hear a Pavement album, you realize most of the good music today has taken great influence from this Californian band sound.
Pavemente started back in 1989 in Stockton, California, but they didn't released their debut until 1992's Slanted Enchanted. In 1994, the band released Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain, which is, actually, the only of their albums I have carefully heard, however, this proved enough to set Pavement on my top 10 bands of all-time. In 1999, after some dissing with Smashing Pumpkins and a lot of tour, lead singer Stephem Malkmus, decided it was time to give it a rest.
Rumours of their reunion have been circling all over the decade, however, it was not until mid-2009, when it was made official, Pavement would be playing two concerts in 2010. More dates were added later and now they're on a complete tour and working on a new studio album. Hope they will do enough to be on the deserved comebacks, and not on a very filled up list of non-deservable ones.
Latest news was the band were to release a Greatest Hits compilation, "whow buys Greatest Hits these days?" someone noted, but anyways, it is kind of a milestone for a band, and Pavement sure deserve it. The title of the compilation is Quarantine the Past: The Best of Pavement, scheduled for released this March. Matador, the label to which they have been associated through the years are issuing it, and are running a contest about guessing the tracklisting. Here goes the advertising for this contest:



Here I add the song which is the only one noticed on the tracklisting of the compilation:
