Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks Wig Out At Jagbags on LP + Download

Wig Out At Jagbags is Stephen Malkmus’ sixth solo effort with the Jicks and it finds the former Pavement leader (alongside Joanna Bolme, Jake Morris and Mike Clark) at his most playful and joyous in recent memory. The album, written in Berlin and recorded in Belgium with longtime Pavement and Jicks associate Remko Schouten, is a looser, more unbridled affair that gathers those trademark guitar moves and lyrical acrobatics into an amalgam of what Malkmus himself calls: “Projected imaginings of rock and roll from the freezing North, rendered by West Coast stalwarts and a Dutch uncle.”

Malkmus, having lived in Berlin for the past 2 years, combines the manical wizadry of Can (who Malkmus covered on Plays Can’s Ege Bamyasi) and the West Coast imaginings of Jefferson Airplane. Malkmus also cites “Cologne Germany, Mark Von Schlegel, Rosemarie Trockel, Von Sparr and Jan Lankisch, Can and Gas. Imagine Weezer/Chili Peppers, Sic Alps, UVA in the late 80’s, NYRB, Aroma Charlottenburg, inactivity, jamming, indie guys trying to sound Memphis, Flipper, Pete Townshend, Pavement, the Joggers, The NBA, home life in the 2010’s...” as inspiration.

As it spans nods to the embryonic days of college rock on “Lariat,” (see those Bongwater and Sun City Girls shoutouts), the galloping guitars and horns on “Chartjunk” and arrives at the rallying coda of “Surreal Teenagers,” Wig Out At Jagbags is a portrait of an American master stretching out and showing no signs of slowing down.
