Watery, Domestic is an EP by Pavement.

The record marked the recording debuts of both Bob Nastanovich and Mark Ibold on percussion and bass respectively - although both had been touring members for some time, the debut album, Slanted and Enchanted and the preceding EPs had been recorded by a trio of Stephen Malkmus, Spiral Stairs and Gary Young. This EP came to mark the final time Young would record with the band. All four songs can also be found on Slanted and Enchanted: Luxe & Reduxe, the liner notes to which identify a further 3 songs as having been recorded during the same session. As well as the standard CD and 12" vinyl releases, the record was also available as a 12" picture disc in the UK.

The image of the rooster on the cover was created by defacing the cover of the self-titled album by Ambergris.

"Texas Never Whispers" was sampled by Placebo for their song "Slave to the Wage" from their 2000 album Black Market Music.

"Frontwards" was covered by Cardiff-based indie-pop band Los Campesinos!.

"Shoot the Singer (1 Sick Verse)" is often covered live by Yoni Wolf of the band Why?.

"Texas Never Whispers" was the inspiration for the name of Austin, Texas indie rock group Texas Never Whispers.
