Stephen is, of course, best known as songwriter, and frontman of the legendary band Pavement. That isn’t to say that his solo work with The Jicks is merely a side project. They do, after all, now have 4 LP’s under their belt, including 2011’s Mirror Traffic, which was produced by no other than Beck, and generally got some great reviews. Really, this project of Malkmus’ has been strong, and steady since it’s formation in 2000, following Pavement’s first “hiatus.” Here, you will still find at heart the crazy skills of Stephen+guitar. The live shows have been getting a lot of buzz, and the showmanship is solid.
