Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks - Senator by DominoRecordCo
YES! New Stephen Malkmus and he seems engaged! I liked the last album well enough, but Malkmus seemed a little too disinterested. "The Senator" is much more up front and energetic. It still contains Malkmus' trademark wit and humor. This increases the expectations for the new album. The "Senator" makes me think that the new Beck produced album might be a little more Pavement and a little less loose jam fest. Time to get excited.
