New Music Tuesday

Two nice releases to start the new year.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks come out with their first album in three years and as expected it’s  a jam fest of rockin’ good tunes.  I imagine these songs are going to play well on the summer festival circuit.  It’s both jammy and punk sounding.  For those of you that miss Sonic Youth, this might be the closest you’ll get.

Here the first single “Lariat” that recalls Stephen’s recent move with his family to Berlin.

Peter Gabriel came up with a great idea.  He’ll do covers of songs from artists he admires and they’ll do songs of his.  Peter’s end of the bargain came out in 2011.  Now in 2014, he finally gets the other part of the bargain.  Welcome to Scratch My Back & I’ll Scratch Yours.

Here’s Feist doing “Don’t Give Up” with Peter

And this is Bon Iver and Peter doing “Come Talk To Me”

2014 is already shaping up to be a great music year!
