It’s pretty amazing how Dinosaur Jr. are still making new music and how that new music absolutely holds its own against the music they were making when they were much, much younger. Yesterday, the band dropped a video in which Henry Rollins announced the existence of Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not, a new Dino Jr. album that’ll be arriving later this summer. And today, they’ve shared the first single “Tiny,” a propulsive sludge-rocker with some serious power-pop hooks in there with all the fuzz-pedal roar. The song is up on Spotify now, and the band also played it on the BBC show Later… With Jools Holland last night. So right now, you can hear the live and studio versions of the song below.
Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not is out 8/5 on Jagjaguwar. I love that opening drum crack.
