On March 15th, Stephen Malkmus will take a weight off his back and finally release his “rejected” electronic solo album, Groove Denied. Already, we’ve heard two scoops of the digital ash in “Viktor Borgia” and “Rushing the Acid Frat”, and now he’s given us a third.
Titled “Come Get Me”, the latest track finds our ol’ Malkmus sitting by his lonesome as he sings these sad bastard lyrics: “Won’t somebody come get me/ I’m all alone here I can’t see/ Any reason to wallow/ In this decanter.” Christ, please, will someone go get him, already?
Grab your keys and pick him up below in the song’s hilarious lyric video. As you can see, those tongue-in-cheek portraits that have accompanied this album’s release weren’t simply for one-note yucks. No, there’s a whole goddamn museum full of ’em.
Groove Denied is due out March 15th through Matador Records. In support, Malkmus has announced more 2019 tour dates, including new gigs in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Paris. He’ll be joined by opening acts Eleanor Friedberger and Mary Lattimore. Find Malkmus’ updated itinerary below and get your tickets now.
