Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks have announced their new album Sparkle Hard. It’s due out May 18 on Matador. The group led by the renowned Pavement frontman has also released the second single from the record, entitled “Shiggy.” It’s huge-sounding, sludgy, and full of the aggressively disaffected attitude that characterized Pavement’s formative work. Previously, Malkmus released the considerably more mellow, folk-rocky tune “Middle America,” which will also be included on  Listen below, and check out Sparkle Hard‘s cover art and tracklist, as well as the Jicks’ upcoming tour dates.
