Dinosaur Jr.-Farm
Song: I Want You to Know
Artist: Dinosaur Jr.
Album: Farm
Label: Jagjaguwar Records
Notes: 1st single from LP
Analysis: Now thats some artwork. Indie rock legends Dinosaur Jr. are on their ninth record in almost 25 years, and don’t sound like they’ve aged a bit. The crunchy guitars and J Mascis’ timeless singing voice are as relevant today as they were on their 1993 flirt with the mainstream, ‘Start Choppin’. ‘I Want You to Know’ gets a little Pearl Jam-ish at some points, but it never sounds like something that’s rehashed. I like hearing older bands that are still able to rock, and while I’m a bit too young to have followed Dinosaur Jr through their best years, I’m familiar enough with their more popular songs to know that they still have it. This is the type of stuff that will cement a band in history: consistant quality.
