Respected indie-rockers Pavement are currently recording material for their fifth
album in a New York studio, according to Deborah Orr, spokesperson for Pavement's
label, Matador Records. Earlier this year, the group began laying tracks at a Portland,
Ore., recording space; it also has spent time in Sonic Youth's studio in New
York City, Orr said. As yet, there's no word on what material will be included on the
album, which won't be released until late spring 1999 at the earliest.
