Stephen Malkmus

The band Pavement — from Stockton California — epitomized the slacker ethos of the 1990s. But they broke up last year. And now, the band's leader, Stephen Malkmus, has a new CD. Critic James Sullivan says Malkmus's music has a new, less cynical attitude. (4:00) Stephen Malkmus' self-titled CD is on the Matador label, release number ole-444, www.matador.recs.com.
