Dinosaur Jr. is going to round out the return to the roots of indie rock tour that has swept Nashville this summer. We’ve already heard from Sebadoh, Guided By Voices, and Archers of Loaf this summer, but it is Dinosaur Jr. that really seems to aging like a fine wine. Since reforming in 2005, the band has released Beyond and Farm, which is at least on par with peak era material. This week comes the release of their newest record I Bet On Sky which is due out on September 18th. NPR is streaming that record this week, and you can check it out here. You can check out the video for the excellent first release from that record, “Watch The Corners” below. You can see the cover art for I Bet On Sky at the bottom.
If you haven’t already, make sure that you have your calendars marked for their October 1st show at Mercy Lounge. You can grab tickets for that one here.
