Dinosaur Jr.’s latest album Farm is receiving some prime real estate on Pitchfork.com’s home page today for “best new music.”
Farm earned an 8.5 rating and the following review by Marc Masters.
“Beyond, the first album to feature the original Dinosaur Jr. lineup since their 1980s heyday, was so surprisingly good it was tempting to call it a fluke. Tempting, but wrong– two years after its release, it still sounds great, on par with the early, hallowed triumvirate of Dinosaur, You’re Living All Over Me, and Bug. For any cynics still chalking Beyond up to luck, Farm should blast the scales from your jaded eyes. Energetic, confident, and catchy, it’s even more compelling than Beyond.”
Dinosaur Jr. will perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon June 25. Tune in to NBC this Thursday night to catch Fender signature artist and frontman J Mascis (pictured below) and Fender bassist Lou Barlow.
