out of stock

the king of the slackers returns – or rather retires to the back porch for a gorgeous set of wonky indie-rock tunes with a few jaunty surprises thrown-in for good measure.

It’s light ’n’ breezy, head-down heavy, audacious, melancholic and reflective, goodtime and bodacious, and it pulls off the smartest trick: comforting familiarity and refreshing vitality in one. and with the quirksome jamming dialled down and easy melodies to the fore this time, you feel as if you could listen to this one on loop forever. it’s time to lose some more days to malkmus’ peculiar genius. “another jewel in his jauntily-angled crown…Thank God for Stephen Malkmus, and may we all sparkle hard.” 8.5 – line of best fit
