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
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.
