It’s been more than a decade since the proto-alternative, volcano-powered guitar-rock outfit Dinosaur Jr. reunited. In fact, they’ve been reunited for longer than they were together in the first place — reason enough that it should feel weird to even call their latest iteration a reunion.
But what really makes it feel strange is that modern Dinosaur Jr. might be better than they ever were to begin with. They’re tighter than ever live, although the bar was pretty low if Chocomel Daze, their recently released recording of a 1987 concert, is anything to go by.
They’re louder and more sprawling than ever in the studio, too (witness 2009’s Farm and 2012’s I Bet on Sky). Yet they still sound exactly like Dinosaur Jr. always did — especially on their latest, Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, which could safely take You’re Living All Over Me’s place in 1987 without any significant disruption to the time-space continuum. Like Mission of Burma, they’ve pulled off the impossible: a revered rock band renewal with nary a whiff of legacy act stank.
It’s hard to leave home sometimes – trust us, we know.
