The 7-inch record isn’t just a format–it’s an art form. On each episode of The Spindle podcast, music writer Marc Masters and music historian (and music maker) John Howard dive into a great 7-inch, dissecting its background, impact, and the reasons why it stands out as a small plastic piece of music history. The Spindle keeps it short and to the point–just like the best 7-inches do. This episode, the duo celebrates the return of Pavement—who are reunited and playing shows currently—and drops the needle on Slay Tracks: 1933–1969, Pavement’s debut EP.
