Dinosaur Jr. Frontman J Mascis Releases Second Album “Tied to a Star”

j_mascis_03

J Mascis, frontman of Dinosaur Jr., is back with his second solo album Tied to a Star (via Sub Pop Records). It’s like a more grown-up version of college rock. The album is mostly soft and lullaby-esque, clearly heard in “Me Again”, which reminds me of Bon Iver.  In “Every Morning”,  Mascis picks up the pace a bit, peppering in some more upbeat electric riffs, though sticking with somewhat harsh lyrics, i.e. “Every morning makes it hard on me / Then I wake up to who I’ll Never Be”.

Hope you enjoy, and as always, please feel free to comment below!
