Which should we include in the Ultimate Stephen Malkmus Playlist?
After discussing the possibilities with you on Facebook, it appears building a playlist around Stephen Malkmus of Pavement, and more recently the Jicks, is the best topic for the show tomorrow night (August 19).
Malkmus has been a hot topic of conversation this week with his new album, Mirror Traffic, produced by Beck, streaming at the Guardian ahead of its release – and in fact it’s even going to be 6 Music’s album of the day on Monday when it comes out.
We would like your suggestions of tracks to hear on the show tomorrow, such as:
* Tracks from Stephen Malkmus himself
* Anything from Pavement or perhaps the Silver Jews
* How about something from Beck – either his own stuff or other bits he’s produced like Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Jamie Lidell or something from Twilight!
* Domino artists
* Artists from California
* People Stephen Malkmus was inspired by or who he has subsequently inspired
* Nigel Godrich produced Pavement's Terror Twilight so maybe something Radiohead, Supergrass or REM
* Or maybe even The Fall as Mark E. Smith once called Pavement a “rip-off” of his band
Please let us know your ideas – we’d love to hear them either by leaving a comment here, going over to our Facebook page, Tweeting or e-mailing us or drag a track onto our collaborative Spotify playlist.
We look forward to hearing from you and join us tomorrow, with Tom Robinson, from 7pm on BBC 6 Music.
