Admittedly I thought this might be a gimmick at first, but after listening to the track “Box Elder,” it’s safe to say that Astrid Swan has another cracking album on her hands. To be released on Soliti on 17 August, Hits (Pavement for Girls) is exactly what the title hints at – a Pavement covers album.
Whilst I’ve never been over the moon about the heralded California group from the ’90s, it’s an interesting project that has begin with its best foot forward. Just as well, Astrid has always been an enigmatic artist whose music is often ahead of its time.
