the pavement frontman’s first truly solo album since 2001, Stephen slips into an inviting pool of electronica, resulting in a new order-meets-lcd soundsystem collision of styles that sound just as good as they sound.

this is not a full-blown plunge into EDM or hiptronica. In fact, there aren’t any purely instrumental tracks on the album. Every song is precisely that: a song, featuring Malkmus staples like an artfully askew melody and an oblique lyric. ‘Groove Denied’ is Stephen abandoning his customary way of going about things, jolting himself out of a routine. With the stately melody and the almost-English-accented vocal of ‘viktor borgia’ points towards early Human League or even Men Without Hats. “I was thinking things like Pete Shelley’s ‘Homosapien’, the Human League, and DIY synth music circa 1982,” says Stephen.
