Amoeba Review

05/16/2018

Sparkle Hard is an excellent showcase for Stephen Malkmus’ irresistible indie rock hooks and often sardonic lyrics. The album covers a serious amount of terrain, touching on the murder of Freddie Gray in “Bike Lane” before switching directions with the country-tinged “Refute,” a duet with Kim Gordon that alludes to her divorce from Thurston Moore. Could any other artist pull this off? Somehow, Malkmus manages to do it with aplomb. On Sparkle Hard, Malkmus proves he’s still the king of slacker cool.
