Pavement are having a big year. Slanted and Enchanted just turned 30 and is getting a new vinyl edition, Brighten the Corners recently turned 25, Terror Twilight finally got the deluxe edition treatment, and the band are gearing up for a reunion tour that kicks off with Barcelona's Primavera Sound.
