Washington City Paper‘s Aaron Leitko and Jason Cherkis take a few moments to discuss Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks‘ new album, Real Emotional Trash. (The song in the video is “Baltimore”—right-click the link to download an MP3.) Leitko and Cherkis also talk about the surprising success of Kimya Dawson in the wake of Juno. (That disembodied voice you hear giving erroneous information about the Juno soundtrack is mine; the album is, in fact, currently the number one album in the country, and Billboard doesn’t have a soundtrack chart.) Beneath our video, watch a video from ChannelKris of Dawson performing outside of Crooked Beat Records on Jan. 23.
