Dinosaur JR maestro J MASCIS (born Joseph Donald Mascis Jr.
57 years ago Massachusetts) goes solo again, for the 5th time.

His new album What Do We Do Now arrives next year in February. More info here.

Mascis: “When I’m writing for the band. I’m always trying to think of doing things Lou and Murph would fit into. For myself, I’m thinking more about what I can do with just an acoustic guitar, even for the leads. Of course, this time, I added full drums and electric leads, although the rhythm parts are still all acoustic. Usually, I try to do the solo stuff more simply so I can play it by myself, but I really wanted to add the drums. Once that started, everything else just fell into place. So it ended up sounding a lot more like a band record. I dunno why I did that exactly, but it’s just what happened.”

First single CAN’T BELIEVE WE’RE HERE is wholly Mascis. Jangly guitars and neurotic vocals.
