Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Mirror Traffic – Out Soon

News has just reached me that a new Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks album will be released in the UK this August. Fresh from reuniting with Pavement for tours across the world, Malkmus has made slackers the world over pleased once more, with the news that his next album is going to be produced by Beck.

If new single, Senator, is anything to go by, it’s going to be a real return to form. I’ve got nothing against his last two albums but they didn’t quite have that beautifully ramshackled, jerky nonchalence and swagger that defined his days with Pavement and the first two albums with The Jicks.

The album is going to be called, Mirror Traffic and I’ve got high hopes for this being one of the albums of 2011.
