STEPHEN MALKMUS- AOW on Dig, RRR, 2SER, FBI January 14th 2014 By Aaron

STEPHEN MALKMUS- AOW on Dig, RRR, 2SER, FBI

2014 has barely started  and we have a new album. That’s got to be good news! Stephen Malkmus ‘Wig Out At Jagbags’ is out now. It is getting some exceptional reviews already. Today’s 4 star Guardian review says: “Wig Out at Jagbags is exceedingly comfortable with Malkmus’s feted past as a pop slacker-savant. It’s OK with the idea of having fun, like Pavement did. It seems comfortable, too, with the idea of a late 80s/early 90s revival. There’s even a little Pixies-grunge fusion in a song called Shibboleth, with its Kim Deal-in-Doc Martens bassline and Black Francis guitar squeal.” Also Dig radio, RRR, 2SER and FBI radio have made it ALBUM OF THE WEEK!!!!
