On 8/23, Matador releases Mirror Traffic, the new Jicks album produced by Beck Hansen. It’s been in the can since early 2010 but held back until this year, when the dust had settled from Pavement’s big reunion. Mirror Traffic’s is Janet Weiss’s last bow as a Jick — she’s off and running with old Sleater-kin Carrie Brownstein in Wild Flag. Joggers’ drummer Jake Morris takes over for Janet. You’ve heard the excellent “Senator,” helped Stephen find a blowjob substitue, and listened to “Tigers.” Now hear the rest of Mirror, streaming in full over at NPR.
