J Mascis - Wide Awake

TUESDAY BLUES

Do you like Singer/Songwriters/Alt-Country/Americana or Indie-Folk, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!

It is never too cold to rock

J Mascis - Wide Awake (feat. Cat Power) (2014)

Grunge godfather/Dinosaur Jr. frontman, J Mascis released this pretty little ditty with some help from Chan Marshall (aka Cat Power) last year. It is a far cry from his signature distortion and fuzz but it has certainly got me interested in him again. I really like the run down guitar riff that he plays, but the fact that Chan Marshall has added her sultry tones makes my cheeks go a bit red. (face, not bum)

Mascis was in session with Lauren Laverne last week and while playing brilliantly, proved himself to be a pretty uncooperative interviewee to say the least!
'Wide Awake' is a real beaut.

Quite wonderful. Have always been a bit of a hit and miss Mascis fan but this hits the spot for sure. As for Chan...well, she's always dear to my heart. Is this from an album?

It's a testament to just how great those first couple of Dinosaur Jr records are...that he can get away with that hair and hat now.

Really good track, wish there was more of that mini solo at the end. I love you Chan Marshall!
