midweek musings: Dinosaur Jr's Farm LP

Just a quick blurt to note that the new Dinosaur Jr effort Farm is the best new material I've heard from any band in the past 5 years. Easily. Heir to the Neil Young/Crazy Horse throne? Yep.

Just goes to prove that the magical combo of J Mascis / Lou Barlow / Murph can't be beat. 2007's comeback LP Beyond clearly was no one-off magical smoke-in-the-bottle effort.

No links to the record this time. You all must buy this immediately, to get Dino Jr the market recognition they so sorely deserve. Farm even tops most of their classic 80s output, believe it or not.

Now back to our regularly-scheduled programming, scheduled for this coming weekend....

    there is something magical when Lou and J are together...i ain't a huge fan of Lou's other stuff, and Dinosaur Jr. weren't close to what they were once he left...but together, they are like milk and cookies...PB and and ludes...
