Beats Per Minute

The album takes many of Malkmus’ favorite indie and classic rock influences and creates something fresh and dazzling.

Drowned in Sound

This is a fruitful and distinctive addition to Malkmus’ oeuvre, not least thanks to Beck.

Consequence of Sound

... an album that captures one of indie rock’s longstanding heroes still at the top of his game.

80
PopMatters

Mirror Traffic is not simply a heartening, satisfying nod back to the glory days that made him who he is as an artist, but a reflection of what’s possible for him going forward.

No Ripcord

Malkmus is at the top of his game, both as a consistent songwriter and guitarist.
