At this point it seems like they might ship the thing to record stores and finally announce it after it has been on shelves for a few weeks.

Malkmus tickling the banjo?

Re: The Official New Album Thread

I'm bored again! sad

Re: The Official New Album Thread

random thought:   what if they're just preparing a "Best of the Jicks" compilation that may have a couple bonus tracks.   the instagram has primarily been historic jicks photos as opposed to new material hints.  and it wouldn't be entirely inappropriate considering the band has been around for almost two decades with no compilation ever put together.

probably not, but fun thought.  one thing's for sure, it would be a KILLER tracklist.   even a b-sides/rarities comp would be high quality tunes, and there is a good body to choose from. 

now i want to go listen to pennywhistle thunder and old jerry ASAP

Re: The Official New Album Thread

that would make the delay in an announcement even more annoying tbh.  they know fans are expecting a new album so to sit on it for months and then be like "psych!  it's a greatest hits!" would be complete bs

Re: The Official New Album Thread

We already know that the album is called Sparkle Hard and it's coming on May 18th. but I want a cover art! and more importantly - a tracklist.

Wait, when did we find this out?

Do a little hopscotch

Re: The Official New Album Thread

I actually think at this point Matador did not want to have two big releases for them, Malkmus and Yo La Tengo, being heavily promoted and stuff at the same time. I think now that Yo La is out hopefully we'll get the new album announcement.

Re: The Official New Album Thread

are malkmus and yo la tengo really big sellers in 2018?  i mean, i know they are to us oldies, but i'd assume matador has younger bands that sell way better than those two at this point, no?

I have no inside information, but Matador has put a lot of juice behind the last several YLT releases, including the deluxe "Extra" Painful edition.

This is nothing but my perception, but it feels to me like YLT is something of an institution in the NYC (and adjacent) indie world. Like they can pop up and play anywhere in the NYC exurban area and sell out a midsize venue no problem. And it makes sense, they are a great band and they are like deans of NYC rock at this point.

There's this thread (http://www.stephenmalkmus.com/punbb/upl … p?id=14023) but I didn't take it seriously.

Probably not their top sellers, but they do sell to the same demographic for the most part? I can understand potentially wanting to pace these kind of releases as well.

And this random comment on reddit from a random person:  "Is the new album titled Sparkle Hard? You'll have to wait to find out

Re: The Official New Album Thread

and a couple other not-quite official references to the May 18th release date and Sparkle Hard title also.  guess we'll be hearing within a couple weeks...
