Dinosaur Jr. return with “Goin Down”, the second single off their new album, entitled “Give A Glimpse of What Yer Not”. GAGWYN comes out on the fifth of August on Jagjaguwar.
“Goin Down” starts out with feedback before a speedy and distorted verse. The big noisy band of the nineties have kept their trademark riffs and solos on this album’s opening song. There’s actually a 6 minute compilation of every solo on GAGWYN to stream on Spotify for those crazy about Mascis’ dexterity. The eleven songs on the album were recorded over a year in Amherst.
Have a listen to the studio version on Spotify or watch the song’s live rendering on Jools Holland last month.
You should also check out the video to “Tiny”, which sees J Mascis and his dog ride skateboards. And perhaps check the band’s two German tour dates:
04.11.2016 – Weissenhäuser Strand, DE – Rolling Stone Weekender
11.11.2016 – Berlin, DE – Astra
