Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks Create Mini Movie for 'Sparkle Hard'

Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks have created a mini movie to promote their new album Sparkle Hard, coming out 18 May.

Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks have created a mini movie to promote their new album Sparkle Hard, coming out 18 May. The film was shot in Portland by director, Brook Linder, who says that he has "long been a Malkmus fan, and for years have thought very hard about what I would make with him given the opportunity. He's such a unique character and there's obviously so much history involved - making anything at all seemed pretty formidable. To me he is mysterious and nothing is obvious. The idea of making a typical visual to match the sound was out straight away."
