Listen: Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks Return With New Single ‘Middle America’

Pavement frontman rolls out first new Jicks song since 2014

The last we heard from Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks was 2014’s Wig Out at Jagbags. Today, the band has shared its first new music in four years with the release of the single “Middle America.” It appears a record is on the way, as Malkmus and Co. also unveiled extensive North American summer touring plans.
