Just finished listening to this CD once on my Mac and i am really surprised how good an album is that starts with the words "There Is No Castration Fear, We'll Dance.." accompanied by an acoustic guitar. Pavement are special. They can get utterly unnerving with the queerest noises and be brilliant a minute later or (as in case here on Wowee Zowee) AT THE SAME TIME !!!
Wowee Zoweee has a lot of this moments of sheer brilliance. Trying to come up with a Genre for them the choice is wide - I was drawn between Alternative Rock, Garage Rock or Indie-Rock ; Psychedlic Rock , Prog-Rock or Post-Rock were an option as well. As Lo-Fi or Psychobily. Even some Punk traces are clearly to be heard (on Serpentine Pad for example) in these 18 trax. Pavement just don't care. Very short songs work as fine as longer ones. The voice of the Lead Singer and the fantastic guitar works always find their way thru. Not a boring minute in sight.
