Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks - "Lariat"

Stephen Malkmus Wig Out at Jagbags

One particular reason to be excited about music in 2014 - right off the bat, we'll get a new record from Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, excellently, hilariously titled Wig Out at Jagbags. But we get our first taste now: here's first single "Lariat," a sweet, bubbly guitar pop number packed with very Pavement-esque turns of phrase concerning nostalgia for a distant summer spent wasted and listening to Mudhoney (doesn't everyone have one of those?). Check out the song with its accompanying video and you'll be able to decipher the lyrics with the help of its star, if you speak French. Wig Out at Jagbags drops January 7; check out the tracklist of equally awesomely-titled tracks below.
