Dinosaur Jr are streaming new track Watch The Corners taken from upcoming album I Bet On Sky.
Track: Dinosaur Jr – Watch The Corners
File under: the grunge pioneers have lost none of their swagger – as this heady dose of the (hairpin) bends proves
Watch The Corners starts out with chugging riffs that ease into J Mascis’ vocals, and properly closes with a shredding solo. Wedged in the middle of the tune is an atypical breakdown with a brief flash of acoustic guitar.
“I always liked that since I was a kid, from like, Black Sabbath,” Mascis says. “Suddenly they go into acoustic, back into electric – I guess I’ve always been into that.”
I Bet On Sky – the third Dinosaur Jr. album since the original trio of Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph re-formed in 2005 – will be released on September 17.
