I LOVE this album. Haven’t connected with their earlier stuff, but the production on this is a blast. All sorts of ear candy, and great pop songwriting to boot. Going to spin it for a second time tonight while making dinner.

I watched a Fender Play live stream with J Mascis. He said he finished a new Dinosaur Jr. album during the lock down and that it would be out at some point. Hope that means by the end of the year.

Some dork from Fender just asked him guitar questions for an hour. Some of them J just sort of sat there and didn't respond to it was kind of funny. They did a few mini lessons on Feel the Pain and Start Choppin. Gave away a Jazzmaster to someone that wasn't me. He played a riff from the new album but couldn't make much of it. I didn't know that J knows basically no music theory for guitar.

J used to come into a restaurant I worked at in Amherst pretty regularly. Super awkward dude. Monosyllabic.

Unless I'm mistaken (and I admit I didn't watch it), I think the "dork from Fender" was Nick Reinhart, singer/guitarist from Tera Melos:

Have listened to this five times I think? Loving it more and more. The gimmick is definitely on the nose: “Imagine is Wilson Phillips did a Sheryl Crow song; and now a Feist song; Fleetwood Mac; Grimes; Carly Rae Jepsen...”

But I don’t care. The compositions are really great, the production is a blast, and there’s a noticeable restraint to it all — the vocals never overpower the music, and they really let the instrumentation breathe where it needs to. Simultaneously very mature and very fun.

Yeah J is a super weird dude. I always felt bad for Lou and those first years.

I agree that the soccer mommy album is underwhelming but I'm not feeling the same thing here. My favorite songs from Stranger in the Alps were "South Street" and "You Missed my Heart," so while I really like "Kyoto" I'm loving this one's quieter moments. Also "I Know The End" rules.


The more I listen to this the better it gets. In the running for AOTY for me.

Pottery are a group out of Canada somewhere's who released their first long player earlier this year. I found it on one of those Reddit posts about "sub-genre albums of the year so far", in this case "post punk" (which is always a genre I'm interested in). What a great discovery! Funky with great guitar and drum work, and always interesting.

Here's album closer "Hot Like Jungle" (which is for sure the most down-tempo thing on the album):

Anyone check out the new Hum record? All the Gen Xer's on my TL were creaming over it. I haven't had a change to listen yet.
