J Mascis is flying solo once again with the soon-to-be-released Tied to a Star. Listen above.
It's another dose of Mascis' softer side, much like his 2011 debut solo record, Several Shades of Why. In contrast to what he's dished out with Dinosaur Jr., he pulls back his gravelly vocals and opts for more falsetto. It's beautifully paired with twinkling acoustic guitars and, of course, the occasional perfectly-placed electric guitar solo.
