Masters of the mournfully minimal, Galaxie 500 kept the Velvet Underground’s lambent flame flickering during the musical dark ages of the late ’80s. The trio (Dean Wareham, Damon Krukowski, and Naomi Yang) were the quintessential indie insiders: beloved by cultists, invoked as an influence by many like-minded bands. Containing more than three hours of performance footage, videos, and TV appearances that are pure mellow gold, this two-disc set is a fan’s perfect booty prize.
