Kannberg's PSOI, the second post-Pavement project from the remains of the lamented indie superstars, serves up plenty of Pavement-flecked sonics with the addition of a rootsy Americana overlay on its debut, All This Sounds Gas. Kannberg was well aware of Pavement's shadow in his solo work, but the distraction was minimal. "The instrumentation on the record is different than what Pavement would do," he says. "I spent a lot of time on how songs should be more my style. Songs that I wrote in Pavement I would do really quickly, and I did the opposite this time. I spent a lot of time on the lyrics and making sure things sounded right. But there are elements of my style from Pavement in there as well. If I made an electronic album, it would probably sound like Pavement."
