Stephen Malkmus and Beck Team Up for Mirror Traffic

By

It's been three years since Real Emotional Trash, the last Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks album, and Malkmus has mostly spent that time collecting canvas dollar-sign bags on the Pavement reunion tour. But no more: Just this morning, Matador announced the new Jicks album. It's called Mirror Traffic; it's out August 23; and it's fully produced by Beck. Were you still holding out hope for new Pavement material instead? You can probably stop doing that now. [Matablog via Consequence of Sound]
