Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks – “Middle America”

Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks are back with their first new music since 2014’s Wig Out at Jagbags, the warm and mellow single “Middle America,” featuring very Malkmus-y lyrics about literally and metaphorically pissing in the wind. The Jicks have yet to announce a new album, which would be Malkmus’ seventh since the dissolution of Pavement. It does seem fair enough to expect, though, since they’re also not exactly being subtle: “News and exclusive content COMING SOON” the band’s account tweeted Monday.

Hear “Middle America” below and revisit our 2014 interview with Malkmus for the release of Jagbags. The Jicks have also announced a new U.S. tour; scroll down to see those dates.
