Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Mirror Traffic (Matador/Domino)

You need Mirror Traffic the way the ocean needs more salt.

Selling out is for losers like Bon Jovi: The Get Up Kids visit Brisbane

It’s like The Get Up Kids are born again and there is no crowd, no set list, no worries.

Song of the day – 303: Nova Scotia
