Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks Full Album Preview
Mirror Traffic is the last Jicks recording to feature drummer Janet Weiss, who departed the band after the sessions. Weiss' replacement is Jake Morris, formerly of Joggers.
Malkmus spent most of 2010 on the road with his previous band, Pavement. No further Pavement shows are currently planned, but multi-insrumentalist Bob Nastanovich won't rule it out either, telling Spin magazine that if the band does continue with its reunion, it will be exclusively as a live entity playing the existing catalog. "Stephen does not write songs for Pavement anymore, or songs in the Pavement mindset," Nastanovich said. more on this story
