Pitchfork 500 - Dec. 24th - Pavement

So here we are at the final day of our christmas/pitchfork countdown. The big question is who deserves the extremely prestigious role of ending this long, fine list of artists. Sometimes the answer just falls right into your lap. I always favoured Pavement as a strong candidate and when I saw this video there was just no better way to wish all our treasured Indie Laundry readers a merry christmas.

'Gold Soundz' is one of the best songs of one of the very best albums of the 1990's -'Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain' (1994). It is also the second single from Pavement's second release. And the video shows the five guys roaming around somewhere in California, almost like Beasties Boys in the legendary Sabotage video. Only, Stephen Malkmus & Co. are all dressed out as Santa Clauses and seem more confused. Along the way, they shoot a chicken and tumble down a hill. It doesn't make too much sense but hey... it's christmas. Have a good one!!
