Description

'Groove Denied' is a new solo album from Stephen Malkmus, released on Domino. The rumours are true: 'Groove Denied' is the secret electronic album that Stephen Malkmus has been telling everyone about, and is finally seeing the light of day.

+ Indies exclusive LP is on clear vinyl.

But 'Groove Denied' is not a full-blown plunge into EDM or hiptronica. In fact, there aren’t any purely instrumental tracks on the album. Every song is precisely that: a song, featuring Malkmus staples like an artfully askew melody and an oblique lyric. Groove Denied is Stephen playing hooky from his customary way of going about things, jolting himself out of a routine. As Malkmus commented, “It’s fun to mess with things that you’re not supposed to.”

The title of first track to be released, ‘Viktor Borgia’, playfully merges the name of the comedian-pianist and the ruthless dynasty of Italo-Spanish nobles. With its stately melody and the almost-English-accented vocal, the coordinates here are early Human League or even Men Without Hats.

“I was thinking things like Pete Shelley’s ‘Homosapien’, the Human League, and DIY synth music circa 1982,” says Stephen, adding “and also about how in the New Wave Eighties, these suburban 18-and-over dance clubs were where all the freaks would meet – a sanctuary.”
