Boomkat Product Review:
Mass-rock mainstays Dinosaur Jr.'s twelfth (!) studio album is expectedly reliable collection of air-fried indie rawk and familiar 1990s jangle. If it ain't broke, etc.
Lou Barlow, J Mascis and Murph are back again with "Sweep it into Space", their first new album in five years. This time it's produced in collaboration with Kurt Vile, but don't expect the singer-songwriter to have had too much impact on the sound: this is still very much the Dinosaur Jr. we know and love. Vile was initially due to have more of a role, but was held back by COVID-19 restrictions. The result is a more traditional record that captures a band that know each other so well (they're 36 years old this year) that it's almost on autopilot.
That's not to say "Sweep it into Space" is dull, far from it - tracks like 'I Met the Stones', 'Garden' and 'And Me' are the sound of a band still more than capable of capturing the bottled lightning that made them such an enticing prospect in the first place. When you get bored re-listening to old Pavement albums or avoiding Weezer clips on Instagram, this should hit the spot.
