STEPHEN MALKMUS - GROOVE DENIED VINYL (LTD. ED. CLEAR)
LIMITED EDITION CLEAR VINYL
Release Date: 15th March 2019
Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus brings us his first 'electronic' record, which he's been alluding to for sometime. But rather than Groove Denied being some bass-blasting business, the album is akin to 1980's lo-fi rock that infused minimal and experimental electro into the fold. This is like putting classic Malkmus tunes through an electronic processor!
For Fans Of: Pavement, Royal Trux, Superchunk, Deerhunter
"The secret electronic album that Stephen Malkmus has been telling everyone about sees the light of day. However, ‘Groove Denied’ is not a full-blown plunge into EDM or hiptronica. In fact, there aren’t any purely instrumental tracks on the album. Every song is precisely that: a song, featuring Malkmus staples like an artfully askew melody and an oblique lyric. ‘Groove Denied’ is Stephen playing hooky from his customary way of going about things, jolting himself out of a routine. As Malkmus commented, “It’s fun to mess with things that you’re not supposed to.”"
