From Billboard 2 Feb
Former Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus will release his third solo album May 24 via Matador. The 11-track "Face the Truth" includes the track "It Kills," a live version of which was recorded with his backing band, the Jicks, and released last fall on Matador's "At Fifteen" compilation. "I did more of it myself, a little bit like the old Pavement records," Malkmus told Billboard.com last September. "Because the studio was in my basement, I took the helm. I pretty much engineered it myself; punching in with my toe, Todd Rundgren-style."
