Western Massachusetts college rock pioneers Dinosaur Jr. reunited in 2005 after an eight year hiatus, but unlike other high-profile ‘80s and ‘90s acts, the trio didn’t reassemble just for a few tour dates – they’re now gearing up to release their third record since 2007, I Bet on Sky, and they just dropped its first single, “Watch the Corners.” If you’re a Dinosaur Jr. fan, there’s lots here to like – at least two massive-but-melodic J Mascis solos, plenty of chugging garage-rock guitars, an overall atmosphere that’s effortlessly conducive to driving around with the windows rolled down. I Bet on Sky is due out September 18.
