Pavement’s second record represents that brief interval in 1994 when this slouchy band got a good MTV buzz going with its sardonically catchy anti-style anthem, ”Cut Your Hair.” Alas, buzzes don’t last, and neither did Pavement. But Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain represents front-man Steve Malkmus’ high-water mark as a snarky color commentator on plastic pop culture.
