There’s been lots of speculation of a Pavement reunion tour of late, but this article from The Guardian UK yesterday seems to imply a reunion is imminent for 2009 and centered around both the band and their label, Matador Records, 20th anniversary this year.

The New Pornographer’s frontman, A.C. Newman, is releasing his second solo album January 20th on Matador Records, where you can pre-order the CD and save $3 . The band recorded several tracks from his upcoming album Get Guilty at a studio in Brooklyn last Monday for Pitchfork.tv. Here’s the video for “Like A Hitman, Like A Dancer.”
