Stephen Malkmus and the Jick’s have offered a perfect way to spend some time away from work with their brand new mini-documentary ‘Sparkle Hard: the Movie’. The doc takes a look at Malkmus’ daily routines.
Okay, that might sound a little dull, but with the help of director Brook Linder who directed the Jicks video for ‘Middle America’ the video has taken what could be a simple prospect and turned it into something insatiably watchable.
In seeing Malkmus take on his ‘usual’ routine of horse riding, tennis and generally being very Stephen Malkmus, we get a peak in to the life of the artist in his Portland, Oregon home.
The band’s new album Sparkle Hard is out on May 18th via Matador records and is likely to be another bonafide cult classic.
