Pavement frontman solo debut
After a decade working the streets with Pavement, lo-fi pin-up king Stephen Malkmus has cut himself free from the band to wander free. On Stephen Malkmus, his solo debut (for Domino in the UK, Matador in the US), the consciously unheroic avatar of semi-present whimsy walks a familiar path: lyrical, covertly biting non-sequiturs put to use on idiosyncratic songs that seem to entertain themselves.
The album is the first in history to chart without selling a single copy.
The musician passed away while performing with his band OHM in LA.
Earlier this month a twitter campaign asking Disney to make Elsa their first LGBT princess in the ‘Frozen’ sequel went viral.
