Malkmus' Real Emotional Trash Album Cover Revealed
Expect a run on thrift store 70s folk festival t-shirts any minute now

When we rung up Stephen Malkmus last month to talk Real Emotional Trash, he answered the phone just as he was "down in the basement, fucking around" and "trying to secure the cover art for this new album." Consider it secured: that right there before your very eyes will grace the front of every copy of Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks' Real Emotional Trash when it hits March 4 from Matador. Hypnotic!

Apart from our ogling, we've also got word that a couple of those Jicks tour dates we told you about last week were slightly more tentative than originally reported. The folks at Matador jumped the gun on announcing those gigs in D.C. and Philly, and have since apologized for the haste on the Matablog. "When and if they're finalized," they write, "we'll be posting something to that effect." Hey, who wouldn't want ol' Malky boy and the band in their building? Crazy people, that's who.

Also, John Vanderslice has been added as the opening act for the shows.
