Album Stream: Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks - "Wig Out at Jagbags"

Stephen Malkmus Wig Out at Jagbags

It's kind of cool to be able to listen to one of your most anticipated records of 2014 on the last day of 2013 - basically, streaming Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks'Wig Out at Jagbags feels kind of like visiting the future! The whole thing is basically as riff-heavy as early singles "Lariat" and "Cinnamon and Lesbians" would have you believe - we're fans of the guitar duels on basically every track, but especially "Planetary Motion" and "Scattegories," not to mention Malkmus's lyrics, which sometimes (excellently) sound like lists of hilarious rhyming items. Check it out - you can get a copy in a record store starting January 6.
