Dean Wareham chats with Stephen Malkmus

in categories:

In Salon Dean Wareham interviews Stephen Malkmus about songwriting and working with Beck on the latest album by Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks, Mirror Traffic. The album is out on Domino Records today.

DW That must be why I feel worthless lately. I read this on Wikipedia, that during the "Terror Twilight" sessions, Pavement’s last album, you spent a lot of time playing Scrabble. Luna, on our fourth album, we set up a Scrabble table in the middle of the recording studio. It was bad.

SM I guess it’s better than smoking crack. It’s a version of that for your mind.

You can stream the full album for a short while on NPR.
