New Music: New Release Tuesday


Malkmus in the middle -- of some Jicks

This week features the recording debut of former Pavement honcho Stephen Malkmus' new Jicks -- his backup band now includes former Quasi and Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss. They get all granola-y and jamlike with the new one Real Emotional Trash. Here they are doing "Out of Reaches" at a soundcheck:



Bauhaus feels it necessary to bring us all down again with what they claim is their last album -- also their first since reuniting after many years of solo earth-wandering. It's called Go Away White and it's not a very nice thing to say to Jack and/or Meg. Here's the video for oldie "She's in Parties":


Mark Lanegan and Afghan Whig-ster Greg Dulli team up their super bachelor powers for the new album under the name The Gutter Twins. Here's "Idle Hands" live at the Bowery ballroom in New York:



Black Crowes return from the H.O.R.D.E tour circuit with Warpaint -- a finalist for Maxim's album of the year no doubt. I would show you a video from rocking new tune "Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution" but the idiots at RED Distribution, the Crowes' label, have disabled embedding because they have no clue how this business of actually promoting a record works in the 21st century.

Despite the lackluster quality of their last few studio albums, a new Black Crowes album is always noteworthy to me.

My uncoolness stands revealed, however, when I admit that I've never been a big fan of Pavement (and have not even listened to any of Malkmus's subsequent efforts) or Bauhaus, though Pavement does have a few tunes I appreciate, and the furious drumming of Janet Weiss can only be an asset to any band.
