Produced by Beck


Pavement Front Man's Best Solo Album of Career


Coming off a triumphant year of Pavement reunion shows, Stephen Malkmus has returned to the studio with Beck producing to record his fifth solo album, Mirror Traffic. Early press reactions are already calling this gorgeous, crystalline production “the album we’ve been waiting 10 years for him to make,” and it certainly contains the most heartfelt and indelible songs he’s written in years. Gone are the long guitar workouts and jams that marked the last couple of Jicks albums, replaced by incredibly
catchy and endearing pop songs.

Recorded in
Beck’s studio over a period of two years, the 15-track album ranges from hard-rocking political commentary (“Senator”), to touching, winsome folk (“No One Is”), to astonishingly virtuosic but melancholy and contrite kiwi pop (“Stick Figures In Love”). The sonics are stunningly clear and impactful, while the lyrics are as inventive as ever but more meaningful than they have been since Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.

“Mirror Traffic” is a long overdue reminder of how adept he can be with words, tunes, guitars. On previous albums with his Portland backing group, the Jicks, Malkmus has indulged his inner prog-rock and jam-band tendencies, noodling away while shooting off on tangents that sometimes went on and on for 10 minutes or more. But on “Mirror Traffic” he enlists Beck as producer, who seems to have reminded Malkmus of what he does best."
