Dinosaur Jr star to release acoustic album
Dinosaur Jr frontman J Mascis is set to release a new acoustic album.
The star is to bring out solo record Several Shades of Why in March next year, with the stripped-down album being released by the Sub Pop label.
HeÂ is no stranger to the acoustic guitar, having played infrequent solo gigs using the instrument down the years, with the shows different to the fare Dinosaur Jr fans are used to, reports Pitchfork.
"Mascis sits down in the middle of the stage, picking at an acoustic guitar and only rarely mashing down on an effects pedal to blast off into one of his inimitable solos," the website explained.
Next year, Dinosaur Jr will be back in the UK to play their classic album Bug in its entirety at the Alexandra Palace in London.
The July 1st show will also see The Flaming Lips perform their seminal The Soft Bulletin record.
