23. J Mascis – Tied To A Star

Tied To A Star
“Tied To A Star” by J Mascis

Country: US
Release date: 25 August 2014
Label: Sub Pop Records

“Come on over baby
Time to figure out
Dreaming of the reason
What will bring you around”

J Mascis is usually found fronting Dinosaur Jr. He also happens to be one of my favorite guitar players of all time. “Tied To A Star” basically picks up where the last Dinosaur Jr. album, the outstanding “I Bet On Sky” from 2012, left off. This is however mainly an acoustic effort, making the impact is less direct. Make no mistake though, “Tied To A Star” is still an excellent collection of songs and Mascis’ guitar play is as good as ever. It also features a beautiful guest appearance by Cat Power on “Wide Awake” (quoted above).
