Trippin' his face off since breakfast: Stephen Malkmus
IMAGE

Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks' new album Wigout at Jagbags will be out January 7 and they've just released the second video from it, "Cinnamon and Lesbians." The clip, directed by Jay Winebrenner, takes a very literal approach, letting SM's lyrics guide the narrative. You can watch it, along with the video for "Lariat," below. You'll be able to listen to the whole album on Amazon starting on New Year's Eve, so mark that in your calendars.

The band's tour will be in NYC in February -- Bowery Ballroom is sold out but the 2/27 show at MHOW still has tickets -- but before that, Malkmus and company are performing a private show at Other Music on January 9 with an open bar to follow. Thing is, it could be YOUR private party. The show is a contest for five lucky winners and their 10 lucky friends. Head to Other Music for details on how to enter.

Flyer for the Other Music show, and those videos, below...

I wonder if tripping with Lil' Malkie is fun or not

@1:52pm...if you're thinking the same thing I'm thinking, then I'm definitely hearing that portion of St. Stephen in the Cinnamon & Lesbians song. Only listened once so far but my ears perked right up at the point. Must be intentional.

definitely St Stephen lick.
Regardless, tastefully re-appropriated.
I think this is going to be a helluva record based on the first two singles.

Upon 2nd listen, I can hear it right from the start now, but it was the stretch from 1:20-1:25 that initially caught my attention upon 1st listen. And a pretty damn fine song it is.

Yeah it is a pretty fucking great song and that breakdown at the end is just ear candy. This record cannot leak soon enough.

Two Notes. Both songs make reference the the dead. Sweet...

Secondly, Mike's face when eating the ice cream cone is priceless.
