It’s J Mascis live, what more do you need to know?

The frontman for Dinosaur Jr. has just released 'Elastic Days', his third solo studio album for legendary indie label Sub Pop. It’s his first solo release since 'Tied To A Star' in 2014.

"[Elastic Days is] an indie rock fundamentalists tour of how it’s done. “It” being defined as writing the best folksy, electric and acoustic guitar tinged songs this side of rock music." - Alternative Nation

Mascis played all the instruments on the album which also features guest appearances from Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession) and Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion) and Zoe Randell of Aussies Luluc.

The video for the albums title track, Elastic Days, features the tragic comedy of cabaret comedian Dina Martina. Says J of the video "I’ve been a big Dina Martina fan for a long time. I’ve seen her perform many times over the years. I’m glad that I got her to do this video before she becomes an untouchable superstar. I am amazed at how the video came out, I’m so psyched."

On tour Mascis plays an acoustic guitar plugged into an amp with his usual mind boggling array of pedals and effects. It’s still loud.

"…big alternative hits like a stripped back ‘Get Me’ proved favourites, with Mascis' liberal use of effect pedals and looping providing a deceptive full-band sound at times." - Scenestr Sydney review.

J Mascis tours Australia this March playing Adelaide Festival, The Farmer & The Owl Festival, Brunswick Music Festival and a whole bunch of headline dates. Tickets on sale tomorrow: November 28th
