Stephen Malkmus Covers Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ for a Bunch of Kids

The former Pavement frontman is a nightmare dressed like a daydream

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks could show you incredible things. The former Pavement singer/guitarist and his current band were in Portland, Oregon, performing for You Who, a live children’s variety show, when they decided to have a little fun and show they were down with the #youths. Malkmus’ take on Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” isn’t one of those rare covers that improves upon the original (how could it, really?), but it’s a fun, inherently goofy little romp. Watch a video of the cover above.
