Dinosaur Jr - What Else Is New?


Today's featured song is "What Else Is New" by seminal alternative rock band Dinosaur Jr. Vocalist/songwriter/guitarist J Mascis has explained the concept behind his band as "ear-bleeding country", and it is an apt description for their mix of melodic noise rock with a quiet-loud contrasting dynamic, and mellow vocals. "What Else Is New" opens with one of Dinosaur Jr's characteristic emotive, squealing guitar solos, before J Mascis's trademark weary singing begins: "I'd like to see you / In the morning / In the evening / But you need a warning".
