Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks have set a March 4 date for their next Matador album, titled "Real Emotional Trash."

The 10-song set marks the first Jicks album with Sleater-Kinney/Quasi drummer Janet Weiss, who replaced John Moen in the group earlier this year. Recording took place at Snow Ghost Studios in Whitefish, Mont.

Next spring, the group will visit North America, Europe and Asia in support of the release. Beforehand, there are shows set for Dec. 19 in San Francisco and Dec. 21 in Portland, Ore.

"Real Emotional Trash" is the follow-up to 2005's "Face the Truth," which debuted at No. 7 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart.

Here is the track list for "Real Emotional Trash":

"Dragonfly Pie"

"Hopscotch Willie"

"Cold Son"

"Real Emotional Trash"

"Out of Reaches"



"Elmo Delmo"

"We Can't Help You"

"Wicked Wanda"

People on this board know who Malk is?

You do. I'm sure there are others. I'm not NOT going to post about a certain artist just because I think no one else has heard of them. Afterall, you don't end up having the No. 1 Indie album in the land in Blender without people not knowing who you are.

Not to mention, liking independent artists (however you choose to define that) isn't some sign of "hipster cool" to me, I simply like music and enjoy spreading the word. Music is meant to be spread and shared, not kept to oneself in some lame attempt to be percieved as being on the "cutting edge". Fuck that.

Pavement are wasted on me...

But I love their appearance on Space Ghost: Coast To Coast!!

'the beatles'

"Moltar! Get me the Beatles to replace Zorak!"

"Ay-O-K Chief... em... Space Ghost... I'm not going to be able to get the Beatles."

"Just get anybody. The audience won't know - they're all stupid."

Well I just thought it was a little odd for a Jahf posted link thread.

I've never been real huge on Pavement. Then again, I haven't heard a lot of their stuff but anyone that salutes R.E.M. in one of their tunes is alright with me (even if it's Hootie). It's not like I keep my head buried in the sand when it comes to new music, you didn't think I'd heard of Fiery Furnaces either. In any event, I figured you'd be interested in the news and perhaps a few other Pavement fans.
