Artist: STEPHEN MALKMUS
Ex-Pavement frontman becoming a
poppy rocker on his solo debut LP
Album: STEPHEN MALKMUS
Released: 13 February 2001 – 20 years ago

AllMusic
: “By keeping things light, Stephen Malkmus — the album
and, very likely, the person — defies heavy analysis from critics and
fans. No, it’s not quite the same as another Pavement album, but its
literate, funny eclecticism is almost as irresistible.”

Band: THE SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES
Who: Swedish retro rockers
Active: 1995 – 2012

Album: BEHIND THE MUSIC – third LP
Released: 12 February 2001 – 20 years ago

AllMusic: “The third album from Sweden’s ‘Soundtrack
of Our Lives’ is their most concise and rocking effort… the
songs are more consistently memorable. Impressive stuff,
and probably the Soundtrack of Our Lives album to start
with for all but the most devoted psych/prog fan.
