beabadoobee shares “I Wish I Was Stephen Malkmus”; Stephen Malkmus responds


Bedroom pop artist beabadoobee will release her new EP, Space Cadet, on October 18 via Dirty Hit Records. She’s cited Pavement as one of her biggest inspirations and if there’s any doubt, here’s proof with new single “I Wish I Was Stephen Malkmus.” You can definitely hear the ’90s indie rock chug in this one, and the song has her belting out “”I sit at home, cry to Pavement / I wish I was Stephen Malkmus.” It also sounds a little like Juliana Hatfield, to make another ’90s comparison. Malkmus himself has already taken note, saying “This tripzz me out.” Check out the song below.

Beabadoobee will be out on tour with Clairo this fall, including two shows at NYC’s Brooklyn Steel on November 4 (tickets) and November 6 (sold out). Before that, beabadoobee will play a NYC headlining show on September 26 at Chelsea Music Hall (in the basement of Chelsea Market) with Gabriel Black, Kennyhoopla, and Jelani Aryeh. Tickets are on sale.

All dates are listed below.
