J Mascis II

 I can’t rate the new J Mascis album ‘Several Shades of Why’ any higher. Its a work of sublime beauty. I hope it reaches a decent audience.

J has been playing around the SXSW festival recently so here are two pieces of fresh fruit.

First, this is title track from the album. The studio version features a wonderful interplay of guitar and violin. This however is J on his own playing it live…..

I’ve played the album a dozen time in the last week and it just gets better. Treat your self.

Now here’s the full audio set from SXWS.
