So despite the sucky, soaked beginning to the day, it’s going to be okay. Mainly because in my inbox this morning was an advance copy of the upcoming remaster of Pavement’s "Brighten the Corners." So now I’m awash in a glut of rarities, live-takes, and never-before-released goodness from one of my favorite bands ever. My jeans aren’t any more dry, but whatever…

The remaster, fittingly titled "Brighten the Corners: Nicene Creedence Ed" is out Nov. 18. In the meantime, please join me in a little off-kilter pop.
