In a sense, Stephen Malkmus and Fucked Up’s Damian Abraham are the chilled-out yin and the amped-up yang of the Matador Records roster. So it only makes sense that they more or less complete each other in the context of a TV interview. Malkmus stopped by Abraham’s MuchMusic talk show The Wedge to discuss Malkmus’ appreciation of Macklemore, which Dag Nasty song is the most Malkmus-esque, indie rock’s evolution away from punk, and more. You should watch all the interview segments stitched together in one clip below because you’re a music nerd and it’s fun.
Is Abraham’s pronunciation of “Malk-a-mus” driving anybody else nuts?
