New Album Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not  Out August 5th Via Jagjaguwar.

What do the vast majority of Dinosaur Jr. albums have in common? Correct, the vast majority have an absolutely banging opening track. From ‘Freak Scene’ to ‘Almost Ready’ and from ‘Pieces’ to ‘Little Fury Things’ it is established fact that Jr. know exactly how to set the tone for an album. That has not changed with their upcoming eleventh studio album Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not. They’ve just shared ‘Goin Down’, which is set to lead their latest effort, and is, in typical fashion, a euphoric mixture of lo-fi fuzz and exquisite melody. Led by a simple chugging guitar riff, the song ploughs through its four minute and three second running time with reckless abandon. Murph’s drums are splashy and driving, Lour Barlow’s bass is typically huge and J’s chorus has the kind of hook that most bands with sell their soul to Robert Johnson for.

What Overblown finds most remarkable about Dinosaur Jr. is that thirty two years into their existence they still manage to create such effortlessly joyful and energetic music. Listen to ‘Goin Down’ below. You can also see the dates for their rather extensive tour this autumn.
