Real Emotional Awesomeness

There are those that have said Stephen Malkmus hasn't been as good since he was with Pavement, and to that I say, poppycock! His last two albums, Pig Lib and Face the Truth, have been ridiculously superb indie rock records and his forthcoming Real Emotional Trash shows no sign of decline.

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks release their new record March 4th on Matador. I was blessed with an advance copy of this release and have been rocking out ever since, which has lead to people looking at me kinda funny in the library at the moment.

The album includes a track titled "Baltimore" which can be found here, however my highlights so far include "Hopscotch Willie" and "Cold Son". You can catch Stephen and the Jicks at the 9:30 club March 28th, with John Vanderslice opening.
