STEPHEN MALKMUS SOLO ALBUM GROOVE DENIED OUT TODAY
Following hot on the heels of 2018’s Sparkle Hard comes Groove Denied, the rejected album Stephen has been telling everyone about, out today on Matador Records.

His first album as a solo artist since 2001, Groove Denied was written in Berlin and Oregon and finds Stephen in a playful, exploratory mode. Made using Ableton’s Live, instead of a human-powered rhythm section, Malkmus’s arsenal further included drum machines, along with a host of plug-in FX and “soft synths.”

“One of rock’s finest guitar poets messes with synths, drum machines, and a vaguely British accent on his first-ever electronic LP. Come for the textures, stay for the typically great songs.” - Rolling Stone
