Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis just released his proper solo debut, Several Shades of Why, two weeks ago. And since (and briefly before) then, he's been out on the road for a solo jaunt to promote the record. He also linked with fellow Sub Pop signee Chad VanGaalen to create the visuals for lead single "Not Enough." The acoustic guitar-led track features background vocals from another Sub Pop artist, Band of Horses' Ben Bridwell. It's an indie family affair, y'all, and the results are excellent.
Several Shades of Why is out now.
