Beware the blood pressure of 90s indie rock lovers, because it's probably about to shoot right up. Former Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus -- who is, apparently, also the father of a Swiftie -- performed a cover of Taylor Swift's hit "Blank Space" during the live Portland variety show "You Who" last month. And it's pretty good.

No, he won't reunite Pavement -- but he will offer his own rendition of the "1989" single. As Billboard points out, this seems to be in keeping with a recent trend of Malkmus': last year, he told the magazine he tried to channel Swift when writing "Lariat," a track from his sixth solo album. At least he's done it all well.
