Last we heard from Stephen Malkmus he was all about tigers. Before that, he was going on and on about a senator who (surprise) wanted a blowjob. Given the content of those two singles, we could only assume that Mirror Traffic would be a lusty political melodrama of personified animals. For better or worse, we were only partially correct. The new album is only a week away (it drops on the 23rd), but you can listen to it today at NPR.
