News: Dinosaur Jr.
Earlier this month we shared with you details on the upcoming Dinosaur Jr. release I Bet On Sky. The album’s first single debuted earlier today on Rolling Stone’s website and it is nothing short of outstanding.
Watch The Corners features rich fuzzed out guitar tones interlaced with acoustic guitars, psychedelic solos and Mascis’ signature snarl. Mascis told Rolling Stone the following on the mixture of guitar tones and textures found within Watch The Corners.
“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.” He adds that it’s not the first time the trio has attempted to release the song. “That one’s been around for a long time. We tried to play it on [Beyond]. It really sounded bad.”
