MP3: Malkmus/Jicks on Senators, Blowjobs, etc.

 

Just in time for the
summertime scandal season…

 

By Perez Mills

 

With word of the new Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks album
zipping around the internet faster than a U.S. congressman can lower his zipper
– the Beck-produced Mirror Traffic is
due Aug. 23 on Matador – the band has now unveiled the first track for your
musical edification. It’s a catchy, quintessentially Malkmusian ditty (with a
great guitar solo to boot) called “Senator,” and as Pitchfork kindly pointed
out, the tunes includes the delicate lyrics “what the senator wants is a blowjob.”

 

 

We also like “stick it where the sun don’t shine/ as the
world turns.”
