Watch J Mascis Cover Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” On Late Night

Back in 2013, Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis released a solo cover of Mazzy Star's 1993 soft-focus torch-song classic "Fade Into You"; it was a limited-edition 7" that came with Mascis' personalized sneakers, so don't feel bad if you missed it. Last night, Mascis played the song for NBC cameras. Mascis was the… More »

Watch A Cute 10-Year-Old Punk Interview J Mascis

Among rock critics, Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis is notorious for being one of the worst interviews of all time, mostly for his Greg Popovich-like ability to stay perfectly perfunctory while every atom of his body screams that he'd rather not be there. But Elliott, of the Little Punk People video series, has figured… More »

Stream J Mascis Tied To A Star

The great Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis is famous for blazing, melodic, eardrum-rupturing, feedback-drenched solos, but his dazed, muttering, tired-of-the-world voice is just as essential a piece of his band's sound. And on his own, Mascis has lately been using that voice in the service of lush, nostalgic folk-rock songs that sound completely natural coming… More »

J Mascis – “Wide Awake” (Feat. Cat Power)

Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis casually announced his new album Tied To A Star on Late Night With Seth Meyers a few months back and shared the spry "Every Morning." The world-weariness of his latest song "Wide Awake" has more in common with the quiet intensity of his last solo album Several Shades OfMore »

Photos: 4Knots Festival 2014 Feat. Mac DeMarco’s Tattooed Pig Fetus

This past weekend, 4Knots Festival 2014 took place in its usual location at the South Street Seaport in NYC. It's a great festival for a few reasons: The location is incredible; admission is free; it's only one day so there's not much of a time commitment; and it always manages to cram in a to… More »

J Mascis – “Every Morning”

More than three years ago, Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis released the casually great mostly-acoustic solo album Several Shades Of Why, an album you should absolutely check out if it flew under your radar. Last month, while he was sitting in with Fred Armisen's house band on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Mascis casually… More »

Listen To Lou Barlow On Marc Maron’s WTF

Last year, Marc Maron was brave enough to interview the eternally reticent J Mascis on his peerless WTF podcast. Today, Maron's got an episode up with another Dinosaur Jr. member: Bassist Lou Barlow, who, as the leader of Sebadoh and Folk Implosion, has left a footprint on indie rock arguably as deep as that… More »

Watch Fred Armisen & J Mascis Cover TLC’s “Waterfalls” In Boston

Portlandia's Fred Armisen has played shows alongside a wide range of talent and we have seen him perform TLC's "Waterfalls" in the past. Last Friday night, Armisen covered the song again at the Berklee School Of Music with Sixpence None The Richer's Leigh Nash and J Mascis on guitar. Mascis and Armisen have collaborated… More »

Dinosaur Jr. Get Their Own Mishka Collection

Around these parts, the New York streetwear company Mishka is mostly known for releasing really good rap mixtapes. But Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis, not exactly the most fashion-minded musician in the game, has been wearing their Keep Watch eyeball-logo T-shirts for a while now, possibly because he noticed that Fucked Up's Damian Abraham… More »

Watch J Mascis Sit In With The Roots On Fallon

A pair of prolific lifechampions joined forces last night, when J and Questo and the rest of the Roots jammed on a series of bumpers, walk-on songs, and covers (Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," Black Sabbath's "War Pigs") on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. A legitimate opportunity to make meme-magic was lost, though, when Jimmy asked… More »

J Mascis – “Fade Into You” (Mazzy Star Cover)

Dinosaur Jr. frontman and eternal guitar hero J Mascis now has his very own shoe, a collaboration with the L.A. company Keep. It's purple, with a design on the back that's made to look like Mascis's guitar strap, and it comes with a 7" picture disc from Mascis. On that single, Mascis covers a… More »

Dinosaur Jr. – “The Only Other Way”

Dinosaur Jr. recently teamed up with Skullcandy to release a special pair of headphones packaged with a 7-inch single. Now the headphones company is streaming the unreleased track, "The Only Other Way," as well as it's B-side, a live version of the You're Living All Over Me highlight (let's face it that album is onlyMore »

This week, for the 237th time, our country tis of thee will celebrate its Miss Independence. Which means that this week, for the fourth time, our blog will celebrate the arrival of Cruel Summer, our annual heartbreak of a mixtape. Tradition.

Governors Ball 2013 In Words And Photos

In 1994, when there were no Vines or Instagrams or Twitter feeds or blog updates to at least slightly numb one's FOMO, I watched MTV's coverage of the Woodstock re-up as a means to dull my anger about being born in the '80s. I was too young to go, and the dry, dirt-and-mud-free confines of… More »

Coachella 2013 Weekend 2: Sunday’s 5 Best Things

The common refrain about Coachella dictates: "It's not about the music, man, it's about the festival experience." With the dance/sex tents in full swing, dozens of corporate-sponsored hideaways at every corner offering shade and mild distraction in exchange for a few minutes of direct advertising access to your brain, and the untamed wilderness of the… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: March 2013

Remember last month when we made a hand-wringing post about the death of the MP3 and thereby the end of the downloadable Monthly Mix? Well, fuck it -- ZIP FILE BACK. Thank you for your comments and opinions! This is blog-in-action. But, we know some of you enjoyed the ease and increased songchoice represented… More »

Dinosaur Jr. – “Entertainment” (Phoenix Cover)

It's tough to say why Phoenix are selling Dinosaur Jr.'s cover of their new song "Entertainment" as a remix rather than a straight-up cover; as far as I can tell, Dino Jr. keep no elements of Phoenix's original version of the song intact. Instead, J Mascis turns their gleaming, precision-engineered pop song into a… More »

J Mascis & Sharon Van Etten – “Prisoners” (John Denver Cover)

The perma-square '70s folkie John Denver might seem like an odd choice to get the tribute-album treatment. But the man wrote "Leaving On A Jet Plane," sang with the Muppets, testified against music censorship on the Congressional floor, and danced on the Orioles dugout during the 1983 World Series, so he's OK with… More »

Dinosaur Jr. – “Pierce The Morning Rain” Video (Feat. Henry Rollins)

Dinosaur Jr. don't show up in their video for "Pierce The Morning Rain," a bleary jam from their 2012 album I Bet On Sky. Instead, director Scott Jacobson gives us actor James Urbaniak playing a suburban dad who becomes addicted to blasting music through massive subwoofers, mostly because that bass makes him feel like… More »

Watch Dinosaur Jr. Perform With Johnny Marr, Frank Black, Kim Gordon, Lee Ranaldo, Tommy Stinson, & More In NYC

On Saturday night, Dinosaur Jr. played a big show at New York's Terminal 5 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their album You're Living All Over Me. They started out the show by playing the album in full, and then they went on to play another set full of special guests. Johnny Marr sat i… More »
