LAST FEW LEFT

Released 25th August 2014.

Dinosaurs bedrock sound still hasn’t changed - its still a sprawling, electric mess of hard rock filtered through folk-rock song structures - but Mascis plays with the arrangements, adding strings, trumpets, and on a handful of tracks, My Bloody Valentine’s slippery guitar orchestrations and vocals (Kevin Shields and Bilinda Butcher both sing on the album). These addition make the music sound fresh, but they would only be window dressing if Mascis’ songs weren’t as strong a they are.

The opener, I Don’t Think, leads off with a thunderous, bass-driven boom enveloping a falsetto vocal, then lapses into a wistful folky chorus. Alone is a three-chord feedback masterpiece which is the closest clone of Neil Young ever recorded by Mascis (and that’s not a slight; it’s brilliant in its own right). A firm favorite is Loaded, with its agonized, gut-twisting vocal and chainsaw guitar line. Getting Rough is played on a banjo and might be taken as J’s reflection on - and farewell to - Dinosaur Jr.

With almost every track, Mascis has worked the song structure, vocals and instrumentation to their most intriguing possibilities.
