Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks - "Senator"


"Hey its May 2011-- and we have some updates. Yeah, the new album is called "Mirror Traffic". There was a lot of deliberation on the album title front but in the end we went the cryptic route--for some reason "Madonna in Love" didnt swing it with the test market. FOr a long stretch when it was gonna be called "L.A. Guns", but with lawsuits flying left and right these days, I was talked off the ledge by cooler minds. This is bad form to talked about what might have been, Negative Hypnosis, but in the age of tell-all I thought I'd join in. We recorded it with Beck over the last year. It took a while to finish due to "Life"--the actual "rock hours" were pretty reasonable........in fact 68% of the tracking, vocals included, took place on one day, a first for me. We pretty much left it all out there, so look for 50 minutes of tunage, 13 songs, and LOTS of good times. Also, Janet Weiss is not with us anymore--over the last year she started Wild Flag .....its a growing concern--We couldn't hit the daily double. We wish her well in her future shredding. ... THe silver lining --- Jake Morris of the Joggers and newly hatched Night Moves has assumed the throne, and it's a pretty swank fit. Look for us in all the usual places in September.
THats all for now. Thanks y'all

Isso mesmo, Stephen Malkmus tá de volta com os The Jicks. Depois de passar grande parte de 2010 em turnê com o Pavement, Stephen termina a gravação de seu novo album chamado Mirror Traffic, que contou com o trabalho de Beck Hansen. O disco chega às lojas dia 23 de agosto. De acordo com Matablog, o resultado final apresenta um argumento convincente que, após cerca de 22 anos aos olhos do publico, a gama completa da capacidade musical e lírica de Malkmus ainda não havia sido explorada anteriormente. Hoje foi divulgada "Senator", nova track que estará no Mirror Traffic. Ouça abaixo como Malkmus descreve o que um senador realmente quer:
