Silver Jews was not a Pavement spin-off. The David Berman-led band just featured some contributions from psuedo-members (?) Stephen Malkmus and Bob Natasnovich.
On June 19, Drag City Records is putting out the Early Times album by Silver Jews and I urge all fans -- Silver Jews fans and Pavement fans -- to check out this seminal US indie rock collection.
For now, download the tune below:
Be sure to check out Drag City Records for more details on this record.
