Open and Shut Cases

We’ve just got tickets for the Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks appearance at Birmingham’s Glee Club, which seemed like a good excuse to post some B-sides from various singles.

I saw them headline at Green Man last year and they put on a great show, mostly drawn from this year’s Real Emotional Trash. The dynamics of the band made for a pretty amazing spectacle but it will be a treat to hear those songs now I’m more familiar with them, particularly in such an intimate venue.

If Malkmus castoffs are your thing, the Matador/Domino reissues of the first three Pavement albums collect together a plethora of b-sides, demos and live tracks. Here’s hoping the Brighten the Corners edition drops soon; it was the album that started my obsession.
