Stephen Malkmus shares 'Rushing The Acid Frat' video

Stephen Malkmus is releasing his new electronic solo album ‘Groove Denied’ via Domino next month, and has shared a second track from it.

‘Rushing The Acid Frat’ comes along with a fancy new animated video, which sees cartoon Stephen bobbing his way through an alternate universe.

The song concerns a certain type of student the Pavement legend remembers, with, as he describes, a “Grateful Dead druggy tie-dye” vibe.

He describes the new song as the soundtrack for a “Star Wars bar scene in such a frat … it’s kinda 12-bar but gigged with psych lyrics.”

We recently spoke to Stephen Malkmus for our New Tricks feature, running through some of his current musical obsessions.
