Dinosaur jr

Postby Brother Spoon » 24 Mar 2021, 18:00

... are back!



Nothing's changed of course, but I don't mind. A minute into it I was sold yet again.
Made me realize how much I appreciate Mascis (and Lou and Murph) for still doing that unique thing they do. A morose Jonathan Richman who kinda wears you down and then you can't imagine life without him. Still connecting to the fifteen-year-old in me (somewhere in there between the downpayments and steady job).

Any fans of the post-reunion Dino jr / solo J. records around?
Or what are your favorites from their work?
Any talk about Dino-related topics welcome (well, maybe not Dino Valente or Dean Martin who are not favorites, they're okay, I guess).

I love them!

I have all the Dino albums
All The J Mascis stuff
plus the Fog releases

Wonderful music

I had the pleasure of seeing them twice in the late 80s/early 90s

Robust stuff!

Most recently really loved Tied to a Star from 2014.




Wasn't aware they had something new, so will be checking it out for sure, thanks.


... watched Grace of My Heart again the other night and was reminded how great this was

I actually prefer the post reunion stuff. Beyond and Farm are great.

Pick Me Up has one of the most stirring guitar solos ever - about 5 mins of blistering ear ripping noise.

Haven't heard that record, but I love his solo (mostly) acoustic albums.



A couple of years ago I completely bonded with this song from 2014.
The words mean nothing much at all written down, but somehow I know exactly what I think he means.

I've always liked the idea of them/him but never knew where to start. Anyone fancy suggesting a playlist for me?
Bugger off.
