The Silver Jews
David Berman's the Silver Jews are going to release a new album in July. The album is currently being completed and is set to be finished on February 24. One of the main reasons I like the Silver Jews so much is because their American Water album featured Stephen Malkmus of Pavement fame. And the really good news? Malkmus is going to play on the new album!
But Malkmus is not the only big named attached to the upcoming record. Steve West and Bob Nastanovich (both former Pavement memebers) and Will Oldham will also be featured on Tanglewood Numbers, the working title for the album.
