Stalwart indie label Matador Records will host a three-day 21st anniversary celebration this October in Las Vegas, with performances by current and former Matador artists like Sonic Youth, Belle & Sebastian, Pavement and the reunited Guided By Voices. On September 28th, Matador will also revisit their history with a six-CD box set, Matador at 21. The last disc will be devoted to unreleased live performances from Matador's 10th anniversary party, including tracks from Pavement, Cat Power and Mogwai.

The limited collection will come in a linen-bound box with an 85-page booklet retracing the label's history and, in keeping with the Vegas theme, 36 Matador poker chips.

Song Stories

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
