Matador Celebrates 15, With Triple Disc Set

Matador Records will celebrate its 15th anniversary with a double-disc collection of favorite tracks and rarities, plus a DVD of music videos. The material roughly dates from 1999-2004, serving as a companion piece to the prior compilations “What’s Up Matador” (1997) and the 10th anniversary album “Everything Is Nice.”

The “greatest hits” disc sports 18 familiar tracks from Interpol, Cat Power, Stephen Malkmus, Yo La Tengo, Guided By Voices, Mission Of Burma, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Belle & Sebastian, among others.

“Unreleased and rarities” boasts contributions from the New Pornographers, Pretty Girls Make Graves, GBV, Mogwai, Matmos and, as previously reported, a live version of the Malkmus and the Jicks’ “It Kills.”

Twelve music videos are included on the DVD, such as Cat Power’s “He War,” Interpol’s “PDA,” Pavement’s “Spit on a Stranger” and Mogwai’s “Stanley Kubrick.”
