I'm fond of a bit of Pavement... but musically/artistically U.S Maple are in a different stratosphere.I saw US Maple supporting Pavement once, I had no idea who they were but I loved it and most of the Pavement fans hated it and shouted abuse all the way through. They seemed to thrive on the hostility.
Isn't that pretty much their whole aesthetic remit? I mean there's no need for a prefix you could just call Shellac core.It's also funny that, what, 30 years and 5/6 LPs in, there hasn't been an ounce of development as a band. Every song is interchangeable from any record.
