Former Pulp lead singer Jarvis Cocker’s new album, Jarvis, comes out in the UK on Nov. 13; we haven’t heard anything about a US release date, but if the shoddy treatment received by Pulp’s final album is any indication, some Stateside label will probably wait six months or so before figuring out that Jarvis is a pretty excellent album, packed with world-weariness and clever asides. We especially like “Fat Children,” which sounds like a sequel to Pulp’s sublime “Monday Morning,” only with a beyond-the-grave lyrical take.
