Dinosaur Jr. - I Bet On Sky

Today, Dinosaur Jr. came through with the first single for the forthcoming I Bet On Sky, signifying the group’s third new release since 2007. The track, “Watch The Corners,” is a song that hones in on a clear-headed melody more than their most famous stuff, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for a little bit of soaring guitar freak-outery at the end. Hear it below.

I Bet On Sky is out 9/18 on Jagjaguwar.

  1. I hope that by some sort of time eddy, I manage to get this LP sooner. I know that it really wants to be my summer album.

  2. emm…sounds like 300 other Dino Jr songs no? this tune is alright, but i wish these guys would be less predictable…..

    • Yeah, it’s a bit samey (specifically reminds me of “Plans” from the last record) but to be fair, this is apparently an older song from the Beyond sessions. Even the line “Can I run and you’ll be there” was used in another song on Beyond. Hopefully the songs from the new sessions will be a bit more dynamic. I can’t bring myself to hate on Dino Jr.
