Slack Gold: Pavement’s Slanted & Enchanted

If you weren't aware that the tenth anniversary of Pavement's idyllic indie-rock masterpiece Slanted & Enchanted is upon us, don't worry. There was no VH1 special, no bank holiday, no legal battle over the master tapes--just a richly appointed reissue. In a way, it's the kind of enthused yet low-key fanfare that this grad-school Nevermind demands: A decade later, Slanted still feels more like a shared secret than a cultural revolution. Its anniversary is a mini Big Chill for a generation that never quite got theirs.
