Lone Dinosaur Ponders Why (Music Review)
First Impression Music Review
J Mascis - Several Shades of Why B
Release Date: March 15, 2011
Music critic Steve Labate (Paste magazine) wrote, "J’s lazy, just-rolled-outta-bed croon set against the stripped-bare backdrop of acoustic guitars and cellos and jingling tambourines is pure magic." I think that pretty much says it all.
I knew this album wouldn't disappoint, solo acoustic is about the closest we'll get to knowing J Mascis. The dude is a total mystery but I dig the way he sings with an every-man-vulnerability and plays guitar like a god.
Favorite tracks - "Not Enough", "Very Nervous and Love" and "Where Are You"
