Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, Live at PDX
Buy Early Get Now -- what a wonderful idea. I now legitimately have the forthcoming Malkmus CD, Real Emotional Trash (phenomenal, need I mention), a whole bunch of extra MP3s, and the promise of getting a free poster in addition to the hard copy CD when it's released by Matador Records on March 4.
I give the concept and delivery two thumbs up ... and know that, had I more thumbs, they would all be way up.
So go forth and pre-order the damn thing!
Below is a live take of "Gardenia" from my most recent BEGN acquisition, a full live set by Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks. The 12.21.07 show was recorded at Doug Fir as is really worth checking out. Come on, guys ... it's hard to pass up, right? You're going to buy the LP, anyway, so why not just pay the same price and get some killer b-sides, a live show, and a poster on top of the awesomeness that is Real Emotional Trash?
