It was produced by Nigel Godrich. Pavement hired British producer Nigel Godrichwho had produced Radiohead and Beckto produce their fifth album. According to songwriter Stephen MalkmusGodrich was a fan of the band and offered to produce with no fee, asking only for royalties. However, Malkmus said: "We paid for the studio time of course, which started to get expensive. Because [Godrich] had his own, uh, standards. The group worked first in a New York studio used by Sonic Youth.
After Godrich felt the results were not sufficient, they moved to a studio once used by the Beastie Boys near Washington Square Parkwhere Malkmus estimated that three quarters of the album was recorded. Malkmus also played drums on one track. According to Malkmus, deciding the tracklist created conflict; Godrich wanted to open with a "longer, more challenging song to set the tempo", similarly to the Radiohead album OK Computer.
The other band members did not like his choice of opening track, which The God That Failed - Masterfully Racy - Masterfully Racy had "barely played on", and wanted to open with an "easier" song. According to Malkmus, "Nigel was like 'I'm done You Are A Light - Pavement - Terror Twilight this.
This is the wrong move. We made a stoner album and you're going halfway. With that much money you should be able to make something good. Many of the tracks on Terror Twilight were previewed at a pair of solo Malkmus shows in California on August 12—13, At these shows, Malkmus played electric guitar and sang along with home demo recordings of the songs. Pavement had recorded a faster, louder version during the Brighten sessions—in fact, at one point "The Hexx" was to have been the opening track on that album.
This recording was edited, retitled " And Then" and issued as the vinyl B-side to Spit on a Stranger. The single edit also appears among eight bonus tracks on the vinyl incarnation of the Creedence edition.
The original cover art for Terror Twilight lists Nobodys Home - Deep Purple - Perfect Strangers final track, "Carrot Rope," as " And Carrot Rope. Initial UK copies of the album came with a bonus CD-ROM which contained the whole album with a brief track-by-track commentary; film of Stephen Malkmus writing this — and calling for the help of his fellow bandmembers in doing so — can be seen on the Slow Century DVD.
The disc also contained the videos for "Stereo" and "Shady Lane" from their previous album Brighten the Corners and a home movie segment containing Rumo A Essa Estrada - Tozé Morais - Forma De Expressão footage also seen in the Slow Century DVD.
Pavement percussionist Bob Nastanovich came up with the title, and has described its meaning in an interview: "Terror Twilight is the short span between sunset and dusk; this is considered the most dangerous time in traffic, because half of the people switch on the headlights, and the other half doesn't.
It's when most accidents happen. Nastanovich explained that his original idea for the title of the album was Farewell Horizontal but that he eventually dismissed the idea because "there was no way I was going to be on the Farewell Horizontal tour for the next year.
