- Someone was apparently scanning my brain back in 1995. Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus is back with a new album, “Mirror Traffic,” and it is produced by Beck. It’s Malkmus’s fifth post-Pavement album with his new band the Jicks and the last to feature drummer Janet Weiss, who will presumably be busy making the world safe for rock again with Wild Flag. “Mirror Traffic” is out on Aug. 23.

- Bummed you missed James Blake at Rock & Roll Hotel a couple weeks ago? Worry not, for he will be back on Oct. 9 at 9:30 Club.
