Hear New Sound: Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks' "Senator"

Last year may have been all about the inevitable Pavement reunion, but any hopes for that becoming a recurring role in the life of frontman, Stephen Malkmus, should be put on hold for now as he and The Jicks move forward with releasing a brand new album, Mirror Traffic. Due out August 23rd on Matador Records, LP 5 also happens to be produced by Beck (who seems to be pretty in-demand among his '90s alt-rock contemporaries these days.) Unlike 2008's Real Emotional Trash which laid heavy on a psychedelic side of Malkmus, our first glimpse into Mirror Traffic's, "Senator," has the iconic indie rocker returning to familiar territory with his guitar work. Based on the timely nature of this release, perhaps Stephen and the Jicks should consider renaming this track to "Congressman?"
