Track Of The Day: Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks - 'Lariat'

Former Pavement man Stephen Malkmus is returning with his band The Jicks for another album very soon. 'Wig Out At Jagbags' is out January 7 via Matador, and January 6 in the UK via Domino. Here is the superb new single 'Lariat', a track that caught my ears with a great tune and typically smart Malkmus-isms such as the line "We grew up listening to the music from the best decade ever..."

Malkmus said of the album: "Wig Out at Jagbags is inspired by Cologne, Germany, Mark Von Schlegell, Rosemarie Trockel, Von Spar and Jan Lankisch, Can and Gas; Stephen-Malkmus-imagined Weezer/Chili Peppers, Sic Alps, UVA in the late 80's, NYRB, Aroma Charlottenburg, inactivity, Jamming, Indie guys tring to sound Memphis, Flipper, Pete Townshend, Pavement, The Joggers, The NBA and home life in the 2010's..."
