Rock God Cred Report:

The lads from Dinosaur Jr are back at it with the new release “I Bet On Sky”.  The album has a 9/17 release date UK & Europe, 9/18 North America.

 Click here to check a cool Dinosaur Jr site where you can hear streams of their music, and download some previous live shows.

 Bet on Sky is the third Dinosaur Jr. album since the original trio – J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph – reformed in 2005. It marks the band’s 10th studio album since their debut on Homestead Records in 1985. The trio has taken everything they’ve learned from the various projects they tackled over the years, and poured it directly into their current mix. J’s guitar approaches some of its most unhinged playing here – this is head-bobbing riff-romance at the apex. Lou’s basswork has more melody now as well, although his two songs on I Bet on Sky retain the jagged rhythmic edge that has so often marked hiswork. And Murph…well, he still pounds the drums as hard and as strong as a pro wrestler, with deceptively simple structures that manage to interweave themselves perfectly with his bandmates’ melodic explosions.

 The tracklisting is:

1.    Don’t Pretend You Didn’t Know 2. Watch TheCorners 3. Almost Fare 4. Stick A Toe In 5. Rude 6. I Know It Oh So Well 7.Pierce The Morning Rain 8. What Was That 9. Recognition 10. See It On Your Side
