Brand new sonic impulses

5 November 2018

Dinosaur Jr.‘s mastermind J MASCIS‘ new solo album ELASTIC DAYS will come out next Friday. Today he shared a clip, featuring drag star Dina Martina, for the reflective title track.

J Mascis said about the video: “I’ve been a big Dina Martina fan for a long time. I’ve seen her perform many times over the years. I’m glad that I got her to do this video before she becomes an untouchable superstar. I am amazed at how the video came out, I’m so psyched.”

DINOSAUR JR. Released Third Album ‘BUG’ 30 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

30 October 2018

Band: DINOSAUR JR.

Album:
BUG – the band’s third longplayer

Released: 31 October 1988 – 30 years ago

ALL MUSIC review: “Relatively cleaner-produced and more accessible than ‘You’re Living All Over Me’, ‘Bug’ expanded on the strengths of its predecessor, and established Dinosaur Jr. as a major band in the American underground. Although the majority of the album is firmly situated in the sprawling, noisy metallic fusion of hard rock and avant noise, Bug also demonstrates that J Mascis has a talent for winding folk-rock, particularly on “The Post” and “Pond Song.” Like its predecessor, the songs on Bug are quite uneven, but it does represent a major step forward for Mascis, particularly on the masterpiece of the record, “Freak Scene,” a surprisingly catchy song encapsulating the appeal and pitfalls of indie rock within three minutes.” – Score: 4.5/5

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: Mastermind J Mascis had the noisy gift to write smooth melodies, build them up and break them down, turn them inside out, inject them with electrifying turmoil, add his wandering vox where needed and finally shape some stirring turbulence with poignant effects out of all his cut and slash work.

TOP TRACKS: Freak Scene / They Always Come / Pond Song / Budge / Keep the Glove
