Better known for his role in Dinosaur Jr. J Mascis is about to release his latest solo record 'Tied To A Star' next week (August 25). On it - and much like on 2011's 'Several Shades Of Why' - he largely ditches the heavy riffing and distortion of his day job in favour of something a little calmer. Instead, he shuffles into folkier territory, proving along the way that he doesn't need layers of fuzz to be at the top of his game. If you're reading this in UK or Europe, listen to the record exclusively in full now.
Preorder the album now, too.
