What can be said about Stephen Malkmus that hasn’t already been said? He’s old school indie and a brilliant artist. From his years with Pavement to his new stuff with the Jicks he still manages to deliver. I am loving the first release off of their new album Traffic Mirror. This song is called Senator, and brings to mind a certain wiener of sorts. The track Senator is epic, and regardless of the social or political commentary this song makes me smile and tap my toes.
