TOTALLY ENORMOUS ELECTRONIC DINOSAURS
You might remember J. Mascis from the barely decipherable, mumblecore interview he gave us in JUKE Vol.03, or, more likely, from Dinosaur Jr.

Now, he’s teamed up with Built to Spill bassist, Brett Nelson, to reconceptualise Dinosaur Jr’s classic Tarpit, using only synths and drum machines for the Electronic Anthropology Project. The EAP is Nelson’s sonic concubine, where he translates famous rock records into ‘80s new wave and synth-pop. Tarpit, along with nine other digitised Dino-juvie songs will be released on Record Store Day (April 21st) on 500 limited edition pieces of purple vinyl – a format you might soon only be able to find in museums, next to the brontosaurs.
