Sasquatch 2008 In Photos Pt. 2

Our second and final Sasquatch! dispatch comes with fewer bands than Part One, but a deeper look at them. Last time we teased Wayne Coyne’s ability to convince young girls to get on stage and dance naked during his U.F.O. party. This time we actually have some images to back it up. Also on the… More »

Coachella: Saturday In Photos (Starring Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Death Cab, Kraftwerk, Portishead & Prince)

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy
Well, this was the best Saturday we’ve had in awhile. We started the day with an afternoon set by SM & the Jicks. Malkmus, properly protected from the UV rays in his shades, outback hat, and long-sleeved shirt rolled-up just so, tempered the heat with his as-usual… More »

Tomorrow Is Record Store Day

When’s the last time you want to an actual record store? Like where you have to walk through a door and can’t just click “download”? Yes, we live inside a blog, but record stores are pretty great. Brandon worked at one (Cheap Thrills Records, New Brunswick, NJ) for a handful of years before the place… More »

Stephen Malkmus: “U2 Wants To Hang Around With Arcade Fire. U2 Didn’t Want To Hang Around With Pavement.”

Malkmus is definitely in (and on) the air these days. We know we’ve been a bit fixated, and we really did try to resist the charms of this A.V. Club interview between SM and Amanda Petrusich, but it’s just too good. He touches upon Arctic Monkeys, Arcade Fire, U2, Kanye, Jon Brion, Mudvayne, Nickelback, Sebadoh,… More »

Kim Deal: “You Know, Malkmus Is Being A Bit Of A Bitch…”

’90s alt-rock fight! As prematurely mentioned, we dig the new Breeders album, Mountain Battles. We also like aspects of Real Emotional Trash, though we still say it runs on (and on). Which is sorta what Kim Deal’s saying about the mouth of our favorite late-night Fox News Channel guest in the new issue of TimeMore »

Stephen Malkmus Visits Fox News’ Red Eye

If you happened to be watching the Fox News Channel at 3AM this past Friday — like who wasn’t? — you may have caught a sorta surreal happening on Red Eye: After the Take-Away strains of Real Emotional Trash favorite “We Can’t Help You,” Steve Malkmus gamely explaining the meaning of a “Jick” (“betwee… More »

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks Do R.E.M. In San Francisco, Secret Show In Portland

The idea of a Pavement reunion’s in the air, but Stephen Malkmus & his Jicks are everywhere else, including a Take-Away in San Francisco and a secret show in Portland. The Take-Away includes a trio of Real Emotional Trash tunes, “Hopscotch Willie,” “Wicked Wanda,” and a pretty, elegiac “We Can’t Help You.” Those are all… More »

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks Soundcheck “Out Of Reaches”

Parts of Real Emotional Trash are real good. Such as “Out Of Reaches,” a song that’s become a favorite around here after we got all premature on Malkmus & The Jicks. It’s a treat then to see the song soundchecked via this clip filmed by Katie Stanford at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall way… More »

Premature Evalution: Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Real Emotional Trash

How rangy do you like your guitar jams? Well, if you’re not into shutting your mouth and letting the fretboard do the talking, you might not be that into digging through Real Emotional Trash. Yup, we’ve already visited Baltimore, presented a tracklist, and hinted at the expansiveness of Malkmus’s wild ride, but then we wereMore »

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks’ Real Emotional Trash Album Art, Tracklist

We’ve only just started picking through Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks’ Richard Avedon-referencing Real Emotional Trash, so it’s still too premature to get Premature. Though we certainly did like the first MP3, “Baltimore” and its run-on guitars. Actually, the whole album seems pretty knotty, but again, we need more time. While we smash our head… More »

New Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – “Baltimore”

We always want more Pavement. That’s just how it is. We were kidding when we said VH1’s ’90s list needed more (c’mon chillun, as if those VHvoters had ever been slanted or enchanted) but now, as if responding to our faux-moaning, SM & his Jicks (one of whom is still Janet Weiss) went and released… More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2007 [Sunday; 7/15] Rating: 6.2

Wouldn’t be a series of Pitchfork scores without at least one bearing little-to-no relation to the verbiage that followed, right? Well, day last of this year’s P4K party in Union Park was another fine one, bringing two more mind-bending sets, and ending (for us) on a perfect note. A perfectly triggered sample, really… More »

2007 PLUG Awards

The night before the mainstream music industry self-fellated on worldwide television, the indie scene had a little backslapping of its own at Irving Plaza for the PLUG Awards show which, despite being rough around the edges, was a decent time. We went for the great lineup (Tokyo Police Club, El-P, Deerhoof, Silversun Pickups, Stephen “Josephius”… More »

Malkmus On Shins, Smiths, Thermals, Mullets

Stephen had a chat with Seattle’s The Stranger, touching on northwestern bands, cities, and fashion styles. Some thoughts on the region’s music (via LHB):What about Portland’s music scene?
There’s stuff going on, you know. There’s all varieties. I’m not totally privileged to know. There’s the Kingdom and the Get Hustle. I like this band, the… More »

New Old Pavement – “Half A Canyon” (Live In Australia)

Still no confirmation on a reunited Pavement headlining Coachella ’07 (we can dream, can’t we?), so Matador’s giving us the next best thing: a 50 (!) track reissue of Wowee Zowee. B-sides, rarities, BBC Evening Sessions, and this live version of the space-blues “Half A Canyon,” in Australia, July 7, 1994.

Crooked Rain People Can Slam A Cock

The A.V. Club asks Daily Show correspondent Rob Corrdry to do the iPod Shuffle…Pavement, “Stereo”
Oh wow, I’m awesome. Brighten The Corners? I would argue, the best Pavement record. The Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain people can slam a cock, because this is the best. I miss Pavement. I went and saw Stephen Malkmus live… More »

Your Mother’s Slanted, Enchanted

In Stereogum’s neverending quest to tell you which indie rock song was in which network sitcom last night, we turn to Kris at PantryRaider. He heard some Pavement on that new Doogie Howser show and even took a screengrab…”Since Michelle Williams uttered ‘It’s Been Slanted and Enchanted’ on Dawson’s Creek, indie yuppies have been either… More »
