With Pavement on the road most of last year I almost forgot Malkmus had been fronting his other band, the Jicks, for nearly a decade. With his old band is back on the shelf, the Jicks have a new (Beck produced) record ready to roll out August 23rd, via Matador, entitled Mirror Traffic. “Senator,” the first taste off the album is, in true Malkmus form, a sarcastic wink to the American political arena.

  1. Awesome, thank you for this!

  2. Sad that this is going to be his last record with Janet Weiss as his drummer, but damn, am I looking forward to it considering how awesome Real Emotional Trash was.
