Groove Denied is a studio album by American rock musician Stephen Malkmus. It was released on March 15, 2019 by Matador Records and Domino Records. Malkmus had been working on the album for 12 to 13 years

In stark contrast to the Jicks’ West Coast open-road splendor, Groove Denied is a true solitary effort, the sound of after-hours home-studio tinkering, gear bursting with tangled wires, and cabin-fever claustrophobia. This is especially true of Forget Your Place, a slow-motion swirl of ambient techno where Malkmus modulates his voice down into a drowsy drone, imagining a future where the robots have come for his job.

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks delivered one of the few great rock albums last year with Sparkle Hard. On March 15th, however, the Pavement frontman will return with less Jicks and more keyboards on his first solo album in 18 years, Groove Denied. For the last year, Malkmus has teased the release, referring to it as his rejected electronic album, though that’s not exactly the case.

It's called Groove Denied because Matador insisted on releasing Sparkle Hard, an album Stephen Malkmus recorded with his mainstay supporting band the Jicks, instead of this electronic-infused record in 2018. This back story was revealed in a May 2018 Washington Post profile of Malkmus by Geoff Edgers, an article that perhaps overplayed the label's rejection of Groove Denied. Matador maintained that its plan was to have the album appear after Sparkle Hard, which was a better record to re-introduce the ex-Pavement leader into the marketplace after a four-year hiatus

Groove Denied isn't the game-changer fans hoped for, but it's also not the disaster Matador expected. Groove Denied’ sounds like something that began as an interesting concept but meanders into just another Stephen Malkmus album.

In 1987, Stephen Malkmus had a bad MDMA trip. This was one reason, according to the press release for his new album, that he gave a wide berth to rave culture in the following decade; he was also busy making several classic indie-rock albums with Pavement at the time. But a few years ago, Malkmus was living in Berlin when he started exploring the city’s club scene and developed an affinity for techno. This was the germ for his new electronic album, Groove Denied, on which one of rock’s great guitar poets messes with synths, drum machines and a vaguely British accent

My white vinyl version (the ltd ed 150 version) did not come with a download card.

Mine did not either. I emailed Matador Store and they sent me a link very quickly. Mine also did not come with a printed insert as the Discogs listing said.

Anyone have the Ultra red? Those were limited to 25, "Ultra Limited Edition: Housed in a custom box and signed by Stephen Malkmus. Translucent red vinyl, numbered edition of 25. Matador store exclusive"

Slowly writer
Copy the clear release from a draft and use that to add the red version.

I got it, number 11 of 25. The vinyl itself is beautiful. The box is really nice and included a hand written note from SM. I don’t see this edition listed here though. Anyway, psyched to have this edition.

I got mine in the mail today. # 2 / 25. Includes a note from Steve M that says "Grand St Shuffle Groove Denied Steve. M played on it a lot lissen up".Includes a red vinyl record, a sheet of really heavy metal foil of some sort (heavier than aluminum foil, red on one side, silver on the other), the standard version artwork, and then two foil banners the have the groove denied cross on them. It is the most bizarre mainstream release I think I've ever received.
