J Mascis

So….new J Mascis album out in March. This is shaping up to be a good year for music. Apparently REM are back on form and Tom Waits is releasing his first new album of original material since Alice / Blood Money back in 2002.

But back to J. Probably my favourite guitarist and thats a tough call to make. To illustrate the point…..

Good or what? Theres some information and interviews here and you can hear one of the new songs.

Heres an older song called Alone which is from ‘Hand It Over’ . This is a live version from 2002.

Alone

Click to play! Now if you loved that you can hear the whole thing.

  1. Spooky. I’ve never heard, “Alone”, before but it’s uncannily similar to which I bashed out a few years ago…

    Apologies for dodgy HTML tagging in previous reply.
    Out of practice!
    You’ll probably have to download file to listen to it. Don’t know why Google Sites does this. It’s just under 5MB 🙂
