Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Cinnamon And Lesbians – new video

SM-wigout

Put simply, Stephen Malkmus is one of my all-time favourite songwriters. From his Pavement heyday through to last album, Mirror Traffic, he just keeps knocking out songs I love and cherish, and his next album, Wig Out At Jagbags (once again alongside The Jicks) is out on the 7th January via Matador.

The first tune from the album to get the video treatment (barring last month’s lyric video for lead single, ‘Lariat‘) is, Cinnamon And Lesbians. It’s no big departure from his melodically loose and lyrically obtuse trademark sound – but, if it’s not broke, why fix it? It’s another great song and reminds me at times of the jammy brilliance displayed on 2003’s awesome ‘Pig Lib‘ LP.
